One can always expect actor Ranveer Singh — who is known for his carefree attitude and quirky style statements — to come up with mischief. During a recent visit to the Delhi University’s Law Faculty, the actor confessed he was once caught attending a lecture in Kirori Mal College (KMC) and had to run in order to save himself.

“When shooting for my first movie, my director wanted me to experience what being a DU student is like. I used to roam around in colleges such as Hansraj, Kirori Mal, Ramjas and make new friends. I sometimes sneaked into classes too and once I even got caught in KMC when someone recognised me and found that I’m not from the college,” said Ranveer, adding, “I feel nostalgic coming back to North Campus. I have so many memories of this place, and seeing everyone around is just lovely.”

The actor was being his witty self— he cracked jokes, mimicked some Bollywood singers and later shook a leg with actor Vani Kapoor, who was also part of the event.

Vani who is a Delhi girl said,“I love you all. Delhi is home and it feels so good to be back in the city.” Later, the actors obliged their fans by clicking selfies. A few excited students even got on the stage but were escorted off stage. Many had come with posters of the actors.

Attendance please, students request!

Amid cheering and screams of ‘I love you Ranveer’, the students of Law Faculty made the most of the occasion to appeal to their dean for some extra attendance. As soon as the dean, professor Ved Kumari, got on stage to welcome the actors, students started shouting “Ma’am attendance dedo!”

A girl in the crowd also appealed to Ranveer, asking him to convince the dean on students’ behalf, shouting, “Ranveer, please ma’am ko bol do thodi extra attendance dedein.”

“Final degree mei, attendance ke 5 marks hain for every subject, which is substantial for overall percentage,” informs a second year student.
