There are countless memories associated with the words’school’ and ‘college.’ We all have fond recollections of our schoolmates/collegemates, from participating in extracurricular activities to causing a disturbance in the canteen. And today, we’ve compiled a list of celebs who attended the same university.

1. Salman Khan & Aamir Khan 

You read that correctly! In Andaz Apna Apna, the actors who made us laugh till we sobbed were actually classmates. For a year in second grade at St Anne’s on Pali Hill, the two well-known actors were classmates. They, on the other hand, never spoke to each other in school. Aamir Khan revealed in an interview with The Times Of India:

The first time I met Salman was at Babla’s (director Aditya Bhattacharya’s) house, who made Raakh (1989). Incidentally, Salman and I were in the same class for a year in the second standard (at St Anne’s, in Pali Hill). And, we didn’t know each other then. I was at Babla’s house to discuss a short film called Paranoia, where I was the actor, spot-boy, production head, first AD – all rolled into one. We shot that film for a month. I was 15, and this is the first time I ever acted. Salman was cycling around in Carter Road. He knew Babla too. We stood on the balcony and talked. He told me about how he also wanted to become an actor. I thought of him as a sweet chap.

2. Matthew Perry & Justin Trudeau 

When they were in fifth grade, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and actor Matthew Perry attended the same Ottawa school. Matthew Perry said on Jimmy Kimmel Live in 2017 that they were not great friends in high school and even got into a physical fight. He said:

We actually beat up Justin Trudeau. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t so it was pure jealousy. I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up. I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid. I didn’t want to beat him up.

Suzanne Perry, Matthew Perry’s mother, worked for Justin Trudeau’s father, former Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, as a press secretary.

3. Twinkle Khanna & Karan Johar

This actor-director duo’s mums were already best friends. After failing to pass The Doon School’s eighth-grade entrance exam, the ace director was placed in Panchgani’s The New Era Boarding School, where Twinkle Khanna was already enrolled. Despite the fact that he was two years her senior, they became excellent friends. Twinkle Khanna revealed in an interview that Karan Johar was madly in love with her and that she was the only woman he had ever loved. She said:

Karan has confessed that he was in love with me. I had a little moustache at that time and he used to look at that and say ‘that’s hot, I like your moustache’.

4. Meghan Markle & Katharine Foster 

The Duchess of Sussex and actress Katharine Foster both attended Immaculate Heart High School in Los Angeles. In 2019, the actor shared a throwback photo with the former actress from their early 2000s performance in a musical. She wrote in the caption:

Meghan and I did musicals together as kids. She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me.

5. Uday Chopra & Hrithik Roshan 

Both of these actors attended Mahim’s Bombay Scottish School, where they had known each other since fourth grade. Because they both had famous celebrity parents, the two grew up with the same circle of industry buddies. They eventually tried their luck and became well-known actors.

6. Cameron Diaz & Snoop Dogg 

The now-retired actor and the popular rapper both attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School in California. During an appearance on Lopez Tonight in 2011, she revealed:

We went to high school together. He was a year older than me and you know, I remember him there. There were a lot of kids in our school, there’s like 3,500 kids, but I remember him, he was very tall and skinny, wore lots of ponytails on his head.

7. Shraddha Kapoor & Tiger Shroff 

Shraddha Kapoor enrolled at the American School of Bombay at the age of 15, where she met Tiger Shroff. He admitted to having a big crush on her during her school days in an interview with Ishq 104.8 FM. He couldn’t, however, proclaim his love. He said:

I used to have a huge crush on her in school. Meri bohot phat ti thi. Bas dekhta tha. Not in a creepy way but main bas door se dekhta tha. Jab woh pass karti thi hallway mein toh uske baal udte the.

In 2016, the couple made their on-screen debut in Baaghi as a couple.

8. Adele & Jessie J

Both outstanding musicians were students at London’s BRIT performing arts school and used to sit at the same lunch table. During an appearance on The Real in 2014, Jessie J revealed:

We had no idea what would happen I guess. When you’re at college you’re just trying to get your grades but we used to sing at lunchtime together, which was really surreal thinking about it now. I left the BRIT school and got into a girl band, which was separate from Adele.

9. Sonakshi Sinha & Arjun Kapoor 

Both actors visited Mumbai’s Arya Vidya Mandir because their parents are well-known celebrities. They weren’t buddies back then, though. In their film Tevar, the two had tremendous on-screen chemistry and were even rumoured to be dating at the time.

10. John Krasinki & BJ Novak 

They attended to the same high school and are known for their funny performances in the mockumentary comedic television series The Office. Both performers attended and graduated from Newton South High School in Massachusetts in 1997. They even played baseball on the same squad. BJ Novak told Ellen DeGeneres in 2014:

John Krasinski and I have known each other our whole lives in the weirdest, most coincidental way. We played little league together. There’s a picture of this little league team in my house, that I was on in sixth grade, and I was sick on the day this picture was taken. John is in that photo, that’s been in my house my whole life, and I’m not.

11. Ranbir Kapoor & Avantika Malik 

This couple, who even dated for five years, went to the same high school. Ranbir Kapoor had a tremendous infatuation on Avantika Malik while attending The Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai. He used to visit her on the sets every day, according to accounts, while she worked as a kid artist. Avantika Malik married Imran Khan after they broke up, after dating for over eight years.

12. Taapsee Pannu & Angad Singh Ranyal 

After a string of film office successes, the actor made his stand-up comedy debut on Amazon Prime Video’s One Mic Stand. Angad Singh Ranyal, a stand-up comedian and a college classmate, joined her on stage for the comedy series. According to a story, she stated:

Angad and I were college mates, so when I got a call to do stand-up with him and Sapan for Amazon Original One Mic Stand, it seemed like something that would be a lot of fun. At heart, I am a performer – I like challenging roles, experimenting with different characters, and stand-up comedy seemed an extension of that. Also, I have always been a fan of stand-up comedy, even in its early days in India, I would visit all the comedy clubs and take my friends along! So doing was like ticking off a to-do on my bucket list.

13. Ben Affleck & Matt Damon

In the 1980s, their mothers introduced the actors while they were children. In Massachusetts, the two lived barely two blocks apart and enjoyed playing baseball together. They attended Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School together because they both enjoyed performing. Matt Damon said in a 2016 interview with Entertainment Tonight:

I’ve known him for 35 years, and we grew up together. We were both in love with the same thing — acting and filmmaking. I think we fed on each other’s obsession during really formative, important years and that bonded us for life.

The two have worked together on a variety of projects, including School Ties, The Battle of Shaker Heights, and Field of Dreams, and have been friends for over 40 years.
