Even as veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher is yet to officially assume charge of his new responsibility as the chairman of Film and Television Institute of India, the students of the institute have written a letter to him raising issues that are now "affecting them".
"Dear sir, while you must be busy accepting congratulatory messages, we would also like to bring to your attention the issues persisting in the iconic institute that you will be heading as Chairman".
The letter, signed by Robin Joy and Rohit Kumar, President and General Secretary, respectively, of the Students' Association, was posted on FTII Wisdom Tree's Facebook page on Thursday. "My good wishes are with him", the ex FTII chief said.

In the letter, the FSA took objection to events like Foundation Day and Open Day started by the institute and stated that over the past one year the administration has spent "large amounts" of money on such events.

The letter further elaborated on this contentious issue, alleging that students were being "forced to sign undertakings to finish their courses on time" with the administration not providing the necessary resources to aid them. It has been a year since the syllabus has been in place so a proper audit of the new syllabus has to be done and such issues need to be rectified.

However, the protesting students have made a decision to boycott the exercise stating earlier, the students would get three days where they could shoot the film working eight hours a day, however with changed norms, the administration has reduced the days of shooting from three days to two days but they have increased the working hours from eight hours a day to twelve hours a day.
