Bollywood celebrities who were once Chandigarh college students
Chandigarh has always shared a close relationship with art and literature. When it comes to art what can be a better example than the exceptionally beautiful Rock Garden, which exhibits beautiful sculptures crafted out of waste and is a major tourist spot.

In recent times, another form of art that has flourished in the lap of Chandigarh and Punjab is Cinema.

Recently, Chandigarh University introduced a BSc program in Film Studies. Renowned Bollywood actor and producer John Abraham flew down to the Campus for the ceremony and shared his views on the importance of promoting the art form, which till recent years was not considered as a career option in Indian society.
