Anupam Kher is new FTII chairman

New Delhi: Veteran actor Anupam Kher was appointed chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India by the Union information and broadcasting ministry on Wednesday.

A notification for the same has been issued. Kher replaces Gajendra Chauhan, who had a controversial tenure as head of the Pune-based institute.

The appointment has been much delayed as the controversial Gajendra Chauhan’s tenure ended in March 2017.

Chauhan was appointed as the chairman of FTII in June 2015. Students of the institute opposed this move claiming that he was not fit for the job and landed up getting the position for being a BJP leader. Students had gone on an indefinite strike to oppose his appointment.
