New Delhi: Delhi guy and now an actor in Hollywood film, Suraj Sharma may be one of the luckiest persons on the planet but when it comes to taking exams at Stephens College in Delhi University it could prove to be a tough nut to crack.
Hollywood may welcome Suraj with open arms but the doors of Stephens are closed for him. As per media reports Suraj Sharma’s attendance was short and he was denied the admit card to appear for his first year semester exams.
The college authorities issued a statement claiming that Suraj Sharma was barred from writing the exam after he failed to submit college assignments. Poor chap! He has been given time till today to complete the assignment. If he could finish the assignment on time, it would certainly be a bigger achievement for him than getting a Hollywood film like ‘Life of Pi’
(PTI)Life of Pi, a gripping tale of a boy, who is adrift at sea on a lifeboat with a tiger will be the opening film at the 43rd International Film Festival of India, scheduled to be held in Goa next month.
