We all know actors for their looks and their performances. We don’t look at their degrees much because we hardly expect geeks to be on stage entertaining us with their performances. It is hard to imagine a nerd mesmerizing us with his performance or beating up the baddies. Also, it is very rare to find actors or actresses who give importance to education over their acting careers. Coming to Tollywood not many heroes are highly educated as most of the heroes are dropouts or only have a minimum education.
