" However, the 33-year-old, who made her acting debut in 2000 with Refugee, added that teachers are as important as moms, which is why interaction between teachers and students is essential."
New Delhi, Sep 4 - As an actor she may be a good learner, but Kareena Kapoor says during her school days she wasn't a very bright student and teachers didn't pay much attention to her.

The actress, Unicef's celebrity advocate, was in the capital Thursday to launch a Child-friendly Schools and Systems package.

On the occasion, ahead of Teachers' Day, she recalled her school days and said: My mother used to wake me up at 6 a.m. for school. I would tell her to give me one more hour to sleep. I thought I had the pressure of carrying a heavy bag.

I would even sleep a bit in class. I wasn't given much attention (by teachers) because I was an average student. So, I wanted to study at home or watch movies.

However, the 33-year-old, who made her acting debut in 2000 with Refugee, added that teachers are as important as moms, which is why interaction between teachers and students is essential.

When a child is punished, there should be an explanation. So interaction is important, said the daughter of yesteryear actors Babita and Randhir Kapoor.
