Anupam Kher resigns as FTII chairman
Mumbai: Anupam Kher on Wednesday resigned as the chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII), citing his commitment to an international television show.
The 63-year-old actor, in his resignation letter to I&B Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore said, “Given this assignment it would not be fair to me, the students and management team, for me to hold a position of such responsibility and accountability, without being actively involved in the operations.”
Kher was appointed as the chairman of the premier film and television institute on October 11, 2017. He had replaced Gajendra Chauhan, who had a controversial tenure, as the head of the Pune-based institute.
