Won't just be an administrator, says Anupam Kher (IANS Interview)

The appointment of Chauhan as the chairman of one of India's most prestigious institutions - by the Information & Broadcasting Ministry that was then headed by Mr. Arun Jaitley - was greeted by much shock and disbelief by nearly all quarters.
Kher, who appeared in several acclaimed worldwide films, also appeared in more than 100 plays. He was also the chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification and the National School of Drama.
They had opposed Chauhans appointment, saying he lacked the "vision and artistic credentials" to merit the post at the prestigious institute. His term had ended in March. "But certainly FTII needs somebody who is much more qualified than whatever Ganjendraji's qualifications are coming across". "I think sharing experience adds up to perspectives and that's what I want to do".
The Information and Broadcasting Ministry on Wednesday said that it has appointed actor Anupam Kher as the new Chairman of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII). Filmmaker Ashoke Pandit extended his good wishes to the 62-year-old and said, "Kher sahab has a great body of work in the Indian as well as the worldwide cinema. In FTII, it's more important to be a good administrator than a good actor", Chauhan told IANS over phone from Mumbai. Chauhan was appointed to the post in June 2015.

Robin Joy, president of FTII students' association told DNA, "Kher is already running a private acting institute and still government has made a decision to appoint him as the chairman of a government institute".
"Obviously, there's no doubt that there are differences between us (students and Kher)".
While the students' body doesn't seem to be pleased with this appointment, a 2015-like agitation seems unlikely thanks to the severe clampdown by the administration on those who had actively participated in the strike which had lasted for four months. So, just as Gajendra's appointment was mired in controversy, the new appointment, too, will be seen as spoils system at work.
