Talking about FTII and former chairman Gajendra Chauhan, Anupam had earlier said, “I personally feel that FTII represents a certain art form. It does certainly need a person having a great body of work which means he is supposed to know the world of cinema. He is supposed to know the present state of cinema like editing. But certainly, FTII needs somebody who is much more qualified than whatever Ganjendra ji’s qualifications are coming across. I certainly do not think Gajendra ji is qualified as a producer, director or actor,” as reported by Indian Express.
