Bollywood celebrities that wanted to be an engineer

In the dazzling world of Bollywood, where dreams take the form of stardom, it's not uncommon to discover that some of our favourite actors and actresses once harboured very different aspirations. While the limelight and glamour of showbiz might seem worlds apart from the technical realms of engineering, there are several celebrities who initially set out to pursue careers in engineering before destiny intervened. 

Here are a few Bollywood stars who had their sights set on engineering:

Kriti Sanon

Before gracing the silver screen with her mesmerising performances, Kriti Sanon was a diligent student with a knack for science and engineering. She pursued her Bachelor's degree in Electronics and Communication Engineering from the Jaypee Institute of Information Technology in Noida before destiny led her to the world of modelling and acting.

Vicky Kaushal

Known for his versatile acting skills, Vicky Kaushal initially prepared for a career in engineering. He graduated with a degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from the Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Technology in Mumbai. However, the call of the film industry was too strong to resist, and Vicky eventually followed his passion for acting.

Taapsee Pannu

Taapsee, who has carved her niche in Bollywood with impactful roles, holds a degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology in New Delhi. Her love for sports and modelling eventually led her into the world of acting, where she has made an indelible mark.

R Madhavan

The charming R Madhavan started as an engineer before becoming a heartthrob in Bollywood. He holds a degree in Electronics from Rajaram College, Kolhapur, and even worked as a software engineer. However, his modelling career opened the doors to cinema, and he went on to become one of the industry's most respected actors.

Kartik Aaryan

Before winning hearts with his boy-next-door charm, Kartik Aaryan pursued an engineering degree in Biotechnology from the D.Y. Patil College of Engineering, Navi Mumbai. His passion for acting eventually led him to the film industry, where he made a remarkable mark in a short span.
