Anupam Kher resigns from the post of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Chairman citing 'busy schedule'.

Anupam Kher shared his resignation letter on Twitter on Wednesday. “It has been an honour, a privilege & a great learning experience to be the Chairman of the prestigious @FTIIOfficial. But because of my international assignments I won’t have much time to devote at the institute. Hence decided to send my resignation. Thank you,” he wrote in his tweet.

The 62-year-old veteran actor was appointed as FTII chairman on 11 October in 2017, around six months after the Gajendra Chauhan’s tenure ended. On which Anupam Kher called it an ‘extremely important learning experience’.

“The teacher inside me will teach the students some things and in return I will also learn a lot from them. For me, this tenure will be an extremely important learning experience. It’s important to have the right intention,which I have. I will go there and see what is to be done,” he had said.

“It’s a very important day for me as seldom it happens that you become chairman of the place where you once were a student. I am not going to start this journey thinking about the previous things. I am a very hopeful person and I have never begun anything while thinking about any controversy or negativity. I will go with a clear mind and do as much work as I can,” he added.
