Veteran actor Anupam Kher quits as the Chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII).
“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 2018-2019, and then for a similar period for a minimum of three years or more. 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,” he added.
On Wednesday, Actor-filmmaker Satish Kaushik was elected Vice President of the FTII Society, after the first meeting of the new FTII Society and governing council was held in Mumbai.
