Veteran actor Dharmendra recently visited the sets of ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa Lil’ Champs’ season eight.

The 84-year-old actor shared a hilarious anecdote from his childhood.

Taking a trip down memory lane, Dharmendra revealed: “Being the son of a teacher, my school life was disciplined. I worked hard and aced my year-end exams, but college changed all that. It was full of fun and frolic. However, I am sad to admit that I paid no attention to studies and my exam results reflected that.”

He further revealed that he had once bribed the college head clerk to ensure that his mark-sheet wasn’t delivered to his father.

“The head clerk could no longer stop my mark-sheet registration from being sent home. I realised my mistake and confessed to my mother. I felt immensely guilty for deceiving my father.”

The veteran actor studied at a Government Senior Secondary School at Lalton Kalan, Ludhiana, where his father was the village school's headmaster.

He did his intermediate studies at Ramgarhia College, Phagwara in 1952.
