Gajendra Chauhan should voluntarily retire, says Rishi Kapoor

Mumbai, July 10: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has joined in the debate over the appointment of Gajendra Chauhan as the chairman of FTII, saying he should retire voluntarily.

Chauhan, best known for playing Yudhisthira on TV epic "Mahabharata", took over as the chairman of the Pune-based institute's governing council last month.

"Advice. After all the protests and controversy, Gajendra Chauhan,the FTII Chairman should voluntarily retire. Will do good to the students," Rishi twitted.

Chauhan's appointment was heavily criticised by current and former students of the institute. They have been boycotting classes, abandoning academic work in protest against the appointment of Chauhan, who they allege lacks "stature and vision" to head the institution.

Earlier, Rishi's son Ranbir Kapoor has come out in support of the agitating students.

"I don't think what the students are asking for is illogical, all they are asking for is to give them a fair chance a fair opportunity, correct faculty, correct syllabus.

I really do pray that an institute that we all are so proud of and seen such great personalties emerge from... Shouldn't be a disappointment for student and future students," the actor said.
