The 62-year-old self professed admirer of the Prime Minister also has to his credit over 500 films. His term had ended in March. His appointment in June, 2015 had led to a massive protest by FTII students demanding his removal, which continued for over 100 days.

A notification regarding Kher's appointment has been issued, officials said. "He is the only person who earlier headed CBFC, then National School of Drama and now has been appointed Chairman of FTII". "I certainly do not think Gajendraji is qualified as a producer, director or actor". "As a student I can say his mentoring has been a boon".

Apart from featuring in Hindi films like "Karma", "Daddy", "Lamhe", "Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge", "Kuch Kuch Hota Hai", "Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara", "A Wednesday" and "Baby", the National Award-winner has dabbled in global projects like "Bend It Like Beckham", "Bride and Prejudice", "Speedy Singhs", "The Mistress of Spices", "Lust, Caution" and the Academy Award winning "Silver Linings Playbook". He has also been a part of global projects such as Golden Globe nominated Bend It Like Beckham, Ang Lee's 2007 Golden Lion-winning Lust, Caution, and David O Russell's 2013 Oscar-winning Silver Linings Playbook.

To a question on the appointment at the party's media briefing here, Congress spokesperson R.P.N Singh said the actor has given some huge performances and hoped he will bring changes for the betterment of the institution.

Kher, who was the recipient of the Padma Shri in 2004 and the Padma Bhushan in 2016 for his contribution to the field of cinema and arts, has won several national and worldwide awards and recognitions during his career in film industry. The psychodrama established Kher as a force to reckon with and in a short period he went on to become one of the most recognisable faces in Hindi cinema. I am not going to start this journey thinking about the previous things.

Anupam Kher is popularly known for his films like Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Ram Lakhan, Dil, Tezaab and Beta.

Over the past three years, the Ministry took several measures such as overhauling FTII's syllabus to the Choice Based Credit System and adding new courses. This is not the first time I am handling an administrative post.

"My job is not sitting in the office but working on ideas and I can handle that easily".
