You would be shocked to know that veteran actor Anupam Kher resigned from the Chairmanship of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). He took this decision regarding his acting commitments. In the letter which he gave to Information and Broadcasting Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, he said that he needed to spend time in the United States for the upcoming International Television Show and so he would not be able give time to FTII.
“At the time when I was officially approached by the former I&B Minister, Smt Smriti Irani to be appointed as the chairman, I did share with her that I was due to be stationed in the US for nearly six months for an international TV show. The latest news now is that the show has been given a further extension of four months. This translates into me being stationed in the US for nearly nine months between 2018 and 2019, and then for a similar period for a minimum of three years more,” Kher wrote in his resignation letter that is dated October 30.
“Given this assignment, it would not be fair to me, the students and the management team, for me to hold a position of such responsibility and accountability, without being actively involved in the operations. Hence, I request you to please accept my resignation and in the notice period scout for someone suitable to take a handover from me,” he wrote.
A meeting chaired by Anupam Kher was held on Tuesday in which Satish Kaushik was selected as the Vice President of FTII. There was no Vice President until now. Producer B.P. Singh was appointed as the Vice Chairman of the Governing Council and chairman of Academic Council.
