Anupam Kher appointed new FTII Chairman

Starring stalwarts like Anupam Kher, Satish Kaushik and Jimmy Shergill along with Soundarya Sharma, Himansh Kohli and Taaha Shah, the film gives important insights into each character.

Citing the norms brought in place for dialogue exercise in third semester, the letter said: "These limitations are logistically not feasible, like the three-day eight-hour shift has been reduced to a two-day twelve-hour shift which would be exhausting and also inhuman to force the lightmen, carpenters, painters and make-up artists and actors to work at such a stretch".

The actor, best known for his portrayal of Yudhishthir in "Mahabharat", said the controversy over his appointment resulted in work piling up. Some students of the institute have raised the question on Anupam Kher's appointment and according to them, it is an issue of conflicts of interest because Anupam Kher runs his own acting school in Mumbai. He replaced Gajendra Chauhan, whose term ended in March 2017. While wishing Kher well for his tenure, Chauhan said, "Being a good or bad actor, doing big or small work, doesn't matter". The 1984 Mahesh Bhatt film Saaransh was his breakout role. Some of his Hindi movies include "Karma", "Daddy", "Lamhe", "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara", "A Wednesday" and "Baby".

He has also appeared in several stage plays and authored a book, "The Best Thing About You Is You". He runs his own acting institute "Actor Prepares".

The 62-year-old Kher was conferred the Padma Shri in 2004 and the Padma Bhushan in 2016 by the government of India.

The actor is all for formal training in the craft.

"There is a training process that one should go through to learn the craft". "Congratulations my dear @AnupamPkher for becoming FTII Chairman!"

-Students are being forced to sign undertakings to finish their courses "on time", even as the administration fails to provide the necessary resources essential to finish their projects on time. Earlier also he was appointed as a Chairperson of the National School of Drama as well.

"My job is not sitting in the office but working on ideas and I can handle that easily". My film, my theatre, shows, everything will be going simultaneously. "You see, my grandfather used to say, "A busy man has time for everything".
