How many of you have yelled, “Doctor!” in childhood when asked what profession you would like to pursue? Many of us would have said so. And for a large number of people, the careers they have taken up now will be far different from medicine. Agreed? 


Many celebrities are so intellectual that they had been studying highly challenging courses in various universities. Some of them, wanting to be doctors, had pursued medicine for quite a while before pursuing acting, dancing, singing, etc. Let’s take a peek at a few of them!
