Anupam Kher succeeds Gajendra Chauhan as FTII chairman

CONFIRMED! Bigg Boss 11 ex contestant Priyank Sharma to re-enter the show

Kher's breakthrough film was Mahesh Bhatt's Saaransh (1984) where the then 28-year old actor played a middle-aged retired Maharashtrian man coming to terms with the death of his son in a mugging incident in NY.

Kher had told Chauhan on national television that he may have worked in cinema and possessed years of experience in acting but that in any way did not make him fit to head FTII. So, I think he will be able to handle it quite nicely. "The actor will take a back seat and the teacher will come to the forefront", Anupam Kher said after the announcement.

In an interview to India TV, he had said, "I am a sycophant of Narendra Modi".

Homes Burning in Anaheim Hills due to Canyon Fire 2
The Canyon Fire 2 comes not long after another brush fire burned about 2,600 acres at the Anaheim-Corona border in late September. The eastbound lanes of the 91 Freeway are now closed, along with both sides of the 241 Freeway south of the 91.

Kher has been a recipent of National Film Award twice for the category Special Jury Award for his movies Daddy (1989) and Maine Gandhi Ko Nahin Mara (2005) respectively. He has also been a part of worldwide 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.

He was honoured with Padma Shri in 2004 and with Padma Bhushan in 2016 for his contribution to the field of arts. He is quite experienced and runs his own (acting) institute (Actor Prepares) in Mumbai.

"There is a training process that one should go through to learn the craft". I am not going to start this journey thinking about the previous things. He had argued that FTII needed somebody "well-qualified and with a great body of work" and stated that Chauhan was not qualified either as producer, director or an actor for the job.

International Monetary Fund positive on global economic prospects
That marked a one tenth of a percentage point upwards revision for each year versus its last set of projections made in July. IMF's 6.7 percent growth rate projection is in line with the Reserve Bank of India's forecast.

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.

"No, no. I am an artiste and nothing is going to change on that front". My film, my theatre, shows, everything will be going simultaneously.

Andrea Pirlo announces retirement
He was the man of the match in three matches including the final against France. "I'll play golf and tennis to keep fit". Like I say, I don't have that intention right now. "After 25 years of football, I will be at home with my family".
