The students of the Film And Television Institute of India have been on strike ever since Gajendra Chauhan has been appointed the chairman. In case you have forgotten who he is (don’t blame you), he played Yudishthir in B.R Chopra’s Mahabharat!
There has been a lot of talk on how unworthy the actor is for this position and that is one of the causes for the students to be on an indefinite strike. Lending support to the student’s cause is Ranbir Kapoor who, in a video, has spoken openly about the controversy. Here’s what he said:
FTII Pune has been a premier institute in India. It has given birth to so many award winning filmmakers, directors, editors and cinematographers. People look at a graduate from FTII with so much of respect.
He went ahead and spoke about the importance of freedom of speech in institutes like FTII and how a dialogue between the students and the faculty is extremely important. Check out his video below.
Good on you, Ranbir!
