Shekhar Kapur appointed FTII chief, alumnus Shatrughan Sinha lauds the move

In what seems like an urgent effort to rejuvenate a dying institution, the Ministry of Information  & Broadcasting has appointed Shekhar Kapur as the new president of the Film & Television  Institute Of India(FTII). 

The FTII once a haven for talent such as Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Om Puri, Rehana  Sultan, Shatrughan Sinha has lately fallen into hard times with hardly any talent emerging from  the once-flourishing  institute.

Alumnus Shatrughan Sinha lauds the  move to appoint Shekhar Kapur as the new FTII chief.  “He is worthy from every angle. Bright mind brilliant internationally celebrated filmmaker Shekhar will bring much-needed vitality and direction to the FTII.”
