Nostalgic about bunking classes


Though she started acting in films when she was in college, she did not let her acting career overshadow her education. “I thoroughly enjoyed my college days with my friends. We were a group of six girls and used to be together all the time. I was notorious for bunking classes. Several times, my professors caught me outside the class, but that didn’t change my habit,” says the actress, who used to hang out in many places when she bunked classes.

“We would never stick to a single place. Most of the times, we would be at ‘Ice and Juice’ near college. We would like different places for different reasons. For chaats, it was BDA Complex and for Basundi it was Pavitra. And sweet paan was also a favourite of ours. In our group, three of us had Honda Activas, so roaming was not a problem at all,” she tells.
While in college, Tejaswini aspired to be an air hostess. But as films came her way, she shifted her interests. “I was not serious about my future during college. More than academics, I was interested in cultural activities. I performed Western and contemporary dances in many inter-collegiate festivals and I remember winning a prize at Christ University. My professors considered me as a mischievous student and really worried about my career,” she laughs.

This girl-next-door could not escape being teased of course! “Whenever a new film of mine would release, the boys would call me by the name of the character I played in that film. Sometimes, they would imitate my character and recite the dialogues,” she recalls. “But college was very good and I am glad be an alumni of National College,” she wraps up.
