When it comes to Bollywood, ditching education in favor of stardom might be the trend, but there are always those exceptions who ar gifted in the brains department as well as the beauty one, and here are seven of them:

 

Preity Zinta

She might be bubblier than ten Anushka Sharmas put together, with dimples to die for, but Bollywood’s chirpiest resident is by no means your average airhead.

Vidya Balan

While we all knew that the Kahaani actress had talent by the bucketloads, her resume would like to interject that she’s no slouch in the brains department either. The 36 year old actress has majored in sociology, in addition to which she obtained a Masters degree. Why does this not surprise us?

Soha Ali Khan

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan

Contrary to popular belief, this Miss World scored a whopping 90% in her HSC exams and was enrolled at an architectural college, having deviated from her original plan of pursuing a career in medicine to feed her passion for zoology.
