Anupam Kher appt Chairman, FTII

Anupam Kher Gajendra Chauhan Anupam Kher appointed as new FTII Chairman FTII Film and Television Institute of India Veteran actor Anupam Kher FTII protest

A notification regarding Kher's appointment has been issued, officials said.

Asked about it, Anupam said: "See, it is not dignified to comment on someone's words that he said in a certain context". The veteran actor has replaced Gajendra Chauhan, who was appointed as FTII chairman on June 9, 2015.

It is a very humbling feeling and a great honour to be the chairman of FTII. "I will perform my duties to the best of my abilities.", Kher tweeted.

Congratulatory messages for Anupam Kher, many from the film fraternity, flooded social media.

He was a part of more stupid films than one would like to recall but at the same time, he balanced it with some art-house projects such as Rao Saheb (1985) or Pestonjee (1988) without much fuss. He is very capable of (being FTII head).

Departments spread awareness during Fire Prevention Week
From the time a smoke alarm sounds, fire officials say you may only have 2 minutes or less to get out of a burning home safely. For over 90 years, Fire Prevention Week has brought awareness nationwide to fire safety and preparedness.


Kher's breakthrough film was Mahesh Bhatt's Saaransh (1984) where the then 28-year old actor played a middle-aged retired Maharashtrian man coming to terms with the death of his son in a mugging incident in NY. Some of his Hindi films include "Karma", "Daddy", "Lamhe", "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara", "A Wednesday" and "Baby". "Finally, the government is listening to us".

Chauhan, however, said FTII needs a good administrator, more than a good actor.

"My good wishes are with him", he added. Since its inception in 1960, the institute has become India's premier film and television institute, with its alumni becoming technicians, actors and directors in the film and television industry. So, I think he will be able to handle it quite nicely. "I will go with a clear mind and do as much work as I can". Chauhans term had ended in March.

His appointment was followed by massive protests by FTII students and ex-students and a 139-day strike demanding his removal from the post.
