After Anupam Kher announced his exit from the post of Chairman of FTII, the prestigious position is looking out for a deserving candidate who can fill the vacuum and bring his / her professional experience and knowledge to captain the ship.


According to the reports, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting is contemplating to appoint Naseeruddin Shah as the new Chairman of FTII. A source close to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting said to a leading daily, "We would love to have Naseer bhai take over. He is a phenomenal talent, articulate, clued in and hard-headed and a terrific administrator. He's perfect for the role."


However, Naseeruddin is unwilling to take over the position offered, but that will not discourage the institute from trying. Shatrughan Sinha who was approached twice for the Chairmanship role, mentions that he knew about Anupam's decision to resign from the post.


Shatrughan Sinha said to a leading entertainment portal, "If you remember, I had expressed my misgivings regarding Anupam's schedules. He had so much on his plate already. I wondered if he would be able to give time to this work. Looking after the FTII is not a part-time job. It requires a man of great cinematic knowledge and administrative skills. It also requires a professional who would be able to work for monstrous hours every day, seven days a week. Grooming and supervising new cinematic talent is not a job. It requires the discipline of a religious practice."


Well, whether or not the institute will find a deserving profile for the role only time can tell.
