College Days

"After my HS, I joined Lady Brabourne College and did my History (honours) from there. Thereafter, I joined Calcutta University to study for my MA, but I didn't manage to complete it. It was because at that time I became so busy with the movies I was doing that there would be no point trying to juggle a career in films as well as studying. There was no way I could have done justice to both. Therefore, I had to quit my MA course in order to concentrate on films." This of course displeased her father who wanted her to appear for her competitive exams and join the IAS, but Ritu had made up her mind about what she wanted to do. She would be an actress."
