Deepika Padukone says she hated academics and was never a bright student as she addresses the class of 2020

Deepika Padukone recently joined the likes of Hrithik Roshan to talk to the batch of 2020 in the recently released YouTube documentary. In her part of the documentary, Deepika recalled some of her memories from her school days.

 
Deepika began saying, "I just hated academics. It was never really a passion of mine- education, learning. I always felt like I didn't have to go through academics to sort of be successful or be whatever."
 
Deepika added saying, "Exams, tests, none of it ever made any sense to me. I'd say average or below average was where I usually sat. In high school it got to a place where temporarily I formed a new set of friends because my friends were so busy being head girl of the band, head girl of school, head girl of something else. My friends got really popular in school. They were busy doing all of those things. I kind of got left behind because I didn't know what to do. I was never considered a bright student."
 
"I tried, I genuinely tried to appear for my first degree exams via IGNOU. I did all of that. I failed. I had to do some tests that you submit. Failed. I was cleaning up some folders of mine and I found some 'Failed, failed'. I have just liked failed. I've not attended some of these things. But this was when I basically clear in my head that I don't want an education. I have done my 10th and 12th, that's more than enough for me and that's about it," she added.
 
Filmmaker Anto Philip has collaborated with various Bollywood celebrities to direct the Batch of 2020 YouTube documentary.
