Anupam Kher appointed as FTII chairman
11 October 2017, 05:37 | Israel Caldwell
Television actor and BJP member Gajendra Chauhan’s appointment as FTII chief triggered massive protests in 2015
The FTII students were protesting ever since Chauhan, whose only caliber was working in a TV serial, was appointed as the institute's chief. A notification regarding Kher's appointment has been issued, officials said.
Kher's colleagues and contemporaries congratulated the actor on his new appointment. Student leaders who have left the institute are still undergoing trials in Pune court for a case of forceful confinement of then Director, FTII in August 2015.
Although Anupam Kher never went to FTII, he is a graduate of the equally prestigious National School of Drama (NSD); his appointment can be seen as a "homecoming" of sorts.
At that time, Anupam had voiced his opinions against Gajendra as he said, "I personally feel that the FTII represents a certain art form".
On his appointment, he said that it was a sense of achievement and responsibility.
Kher has also written and starred in a play about his own life called "Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai", which was directed by Feroz Abbas Khan.
Kher has also worked across different cinemas and featured in the first films of many filmmakers ranging from Indra Kumar (Dil ), Aditya Chopra (Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge ) and Dibakar Banerjee (Khosla Ka Ghosla ) and knows what it takes to fuel a vision.
Thus, the students were on strike for months and refused to attend classes unless Mr. Chauhan was removed. Those who speak for BJP or RSS and support them are being appointed.
FTII Students' Association president Harishankar Nachimuthu, who spearheaded the campaign, maintained that student body had nothing to do with political affiliations of Chauhan.
