CID producer-director Brijendra Pal Singh appointed FTII Chairman following Anupam Kher's resignation

Almost one-and-half months after Anupam Kher stepped down as the chief of the Film Television Institute of India (FTII), Pune, the government on Thursday appointed Brijendra Pal Singh as the new Chairman.

In an official release, the government said: "Government nominates BP Singh as the President of the FTII Society and Chairman of its Governing Council, in pursuance of Rule 3 and 22 of the Rules of the FTII."

It said that the "tenure of BP Singh will be for the remaining period of block of three years starting from 4 March, 2O17 as per the provisions of Rule 6(1) of the Rules of FTII, Pune, and the explanation given thereunder or until further orders whichever is earlier".

On 31 October, Kher stepped down from the position of Chairman, a year after his appointment, citing his international assignments as the reason.

Singh was himself an alumnus of FTII between 1970 to 73. He specialised in film cinematography, reports Economic Times. One of his more renowned works is the long running television series CID which recently completed a record of 21 years of unbroken run on television.

Before his appointment as the Chairman, Singh was serving in the capacity of vice chairman of the FTII Governing Council.
