Star of Marathi blockbuster Sairat, Rinku Rajguru, who became a household name in Maharashtra after the grand success of the movie, has cleared her Class 10 examination of the state board.

Rinku scored 66.4% marks in her SSC exam.

She scored 59 out of 100 in English. Incidentally, a popular dialogue her character, ‘Aarchi’, mouthes in the film is: ‘Did you get it, or should I translate it into English?’

Sairat, released last year, became the first Marathi film to earn Rs 100 crore, and made waves even outside Maharashtra. It revolves around a teenage inter-caste romance which meets a tragic end.

While appearing for the exam, Rinku had said she covered the syllabus in just over a month of study.

She had failed to make it to the school on the first day of the new academic year, disappointing the waiting media-persons and fellow students.

She appeared for the exam at a centre in her native Solapur district.

“The transition from ‘lights, camera, action’ to ‘physics, chemistry, maths’ was not difficult. The one and a half month period I got for studies was enough,” she had said.

In June last year Rinku attended her school at Akluj in Solapur district after being away from home for a couple of months, attending promotional and celebration events and appearing on popular TV shows after the film released to a rousing reception.

Earlier, a day after she got a special mention when the National Film Awards were announced, Rinku appeared for her Class 9 exams in her school Jijamata Kanya Prashala and scored 81%.
