Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 6: Netflix India is celebrating Teachers' Day with a hilarious new video starring popular YouTuber Mahesh Keshwala aka Thugesh along with "fellow bunkers" Shashank Shreyy and Sahil Kadam. Produced by ASK Films, a NEWJ venture, the video - titled 'Mass Bunk' is a throwback to all the mischief, madness and first-time loves from the classroom.

From Thugesh's first crush on a teacher to Sahil's bunking tales, the video is filled with stories involving pranks, fun and bunks from the stars' past. A nostalgic roller-coaster ride full of bittersweet throwbacks, the video - now out on Netflix India's official YouTube channel - is a tribute to the best days of one's life when fun often took precedence over the classroom.
