FTII should be taken se­ri­ously: Anu­pam Kher

HT City - - Entertainment - IANS

Newly ap­pointed Film and Tele­vi­sion In­sti­tute of In­dia (FTII) Chair­per­son, Anu­pam Kher says that the in­sti­tute is a place which is the fu­ture of the In­dian en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try. Talk­ing about im­prov­ing the con­di­tion of FTII, Kher said: “In­ten­tion is the most im­por­tant fac­tor. The blue­print has to be made. Un­for­tu­nately, in the last few years FTII has been pro­jected as a trou­bled place whether it is the stu­dents’ strike or the ap­point­ment of the pre­vi­ous chair­man; lots of things. I think it’s an in­sti­tu­tion that should be taken se­ri­ously; it is a place where peo­ple are trained.” In Oc­to­ber, Kher suc­ceeded Ga­jen­dra Chauhan, whose ap­point­ment as chair­man in 2014 had trig­gered stu­dent protests.
