Anupam Kher and Gajendra Chauhan

Kumar added the issue will be discussed in student's general body meeting on Wednesday night.Meanwhile, FTII director Bhupendra Kainthola welcomed Kher by saying, "FTII congratulates Anupam Kher on his appointment as president of FTII society and chairperson of governing council". For the past two years, FTII has been marred by various controversies as Gajendra Chauhan's appointment was not accepted and met with a 139-day strike by students.

"I would love to facilitate students rather than setting agenda like an administrator". He said, "People didn't know about my working system, whereas the actors who were opposing my work, they knew I was good at administration, because I've worked in the Cine and TV artist association as well for over 20 years, handling so many problems". Mr. Chauhan's term ended in March this year and the post has been vacant since then. While wishing Kher well for his tenure, Chauhan said, "Being a good or bad actor, doing big or small work, doesn't matter".

When told of Chauhan's statement that sounded like a dig, Kher, according to IANS replied, "See, it is not dignified to comment on someone's words that he said in a certain context".

"I am a son of a government clerk who came to Mumbai with 40 rupees in the pocket. So, I am content".

The National Award victor, who began his acting career with Saaransh in 1984, has a vast repertoire of over 500 films. Some of his prominent films include Saaransh, Daddy, Lamhe, Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Maine Gandhi Ko Nahi Maara, Khosla Ka Ghosla and A Wednesday.

Kher has also been part of critically acclaimed global films like Bend It Like Beckham, Golden Lion-winning Lust, and Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook. Apart from this he has also appeared in several stage plays and authored a book with a title "The Best Things About You Is You'". A person who has done cinema, television, and who also owns an acting institute. In 2004, he also been honored with the Padma Shri Award and later in 2016 he got Padma Bhushan for his contribution to the fields of arts.

The actor is all for formal training in the craft.

Anupam says that there are various training process that the one should go through if they have to learn the craft.

In the past few days, Anupam has been busy promoting his production Ranchi Diaries, and he has also has film projects lined up.

Will his new responsibility as FTII Chairman affect his film work?

"No, no. I am an artiste and nothing is going to change on that front. On the other hand, the administration is not providing the necessary resources which are essential to finish their projects on time". However, his job is not just to sit in the office, but he will work on the ideas and he can easily handle that.
