Newly-appointed Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) chairperson Anupam Kher has thanked the students of the institute for their "faith and understanding" towards him.
Kher on Tuesday, 24 October, shared a note by the students of FTII, which read: "Thank you so much for your cooperation and active involvement addressing our concerns. Looking forward to work together towards the betterment of this premier institute. Thank you."
In response, the veteran actor, 62, said: "Thank you FTII students for your faith and understanding. Your thank you note made me extremely happy. Let's do some great work together."
