School principals and teachers have a crucial role to play when it comes to discipline. Which of these roles had you on your toes — the ambitious yet shrewd college dean in 3 Idiots or that strict medical college principal in Munnabhai MBBS?

Amitabh Bachchan played the strict principal in Mohabbatein, an eccentric teacher in Black (who gives life to a deaf-blind girl) or an honest professor in Aarakshan (determined to change the education system without compromising on his morals).

Sushmita Sen who left the boys drooling (and girls green with envy) in Main Hoon Na when she played a stunning chemistry teacher. We want those sexy saris!

A determined but shrewd college dean Viru Sahastrabudhhe in 3 Idiots was a memorable role played by Boman Irani. This proved to be one of the iconic roles of Boman’s career and won him critical acclaim all across. He is also remembered for his role as a strict medical college dean in Munnabhai MBBS.
