A revolutionary and very important decision has been taken by PM Narendra Modi and Smriti Irani where by they have removed Gajendra Chauhan from the post of FTII chief and now appointed Anupam Kher as the new chief of FTII finally putting an end to the FTII student’s problems and ending this long on going tussle between Government and FTII.
Meanwhile , from the time back in 2015 when Gajendra was appointed as the prestigious FTII (Film & Television Institute of India) chief almost all the students had gone on massive protests and strikes for many months thereby stating that they would not attend any of the classes if Gajendra Chauhan is not removed permanently.
The 62 yr old critically acclaimed actor Anupam Kher has added many feathers in his cap as a film actor, theatre actor and has critically praised crossover projects like Bend It Life Beckham and Silver Linings Playbook to his credit.
Anupam Kher has also headed CBFC and the National School of Drama in the past. The national award winner is also an alumnus of the elite drama school.
His wife Kirron Kher says, “He will be an extremely good chairman and he deserves this as he has the credibility for the same. I am very happy…thank you (Narendra) Modi ji, thank you Smriti Irani for this”.
