Anupam Kher appt Chairman, FTII
His appointment had triggered student protests at the Pune-based institute.
Chauhans appointment in 2015 had sparked an outrage among the students of the premier film institute.
Anupam Kher is that rare actor who has dabbled in both art films and commercial cinema and even made a name for himself in Hollywood with pictures like Bend It Like Beckham, Silver Linings Playbook, and others.
Earlier he served as the Chairman of the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and was the Director of National School of Drama from 2001 to 2004.
It was surprising to see that despite the protests, the BJP government didn't sack Chauhan till March 2017.

Chauhan, however, said FTII needs a good administrator, more than a good actor.
In the past few days, Anupam has been busy promoting his production "Ranchi Diaries", and he has also has film projects lined up. "What is your take now Mr. Kher @AnupamPkher?", Chauhan had tweeted on September 17. "As a student I can say his mentoring has been a boon". Chauhan was appointed to the post in June 2015.
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 vast performances and hoped he will bring changes for the betterment of the institution.
"Obviously, there's no doubt that there are differences between us (students and Kher)". Those who speak for BJP or RSS and support them are being appointed. Films made by FTII's students have enjoyed excellent receptions in festivals in India and overseas and have won National and worldwide awards. But at the same time the statements that he has made over the last three years also can't be ignored.
