Madhavan is renowned for his roles in blockbuster movies like Rang De Basanti, Tanu Weds Manu, and 3 Idiots. His most recent film, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, was directed.
The actor R Madhavan was named president of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Society and head of the governing council by the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) on Friday.
On March 3, 2023, former president and director Shekhar Kapur’s term came to an end.
Mr. R. Madhvan has been named the FTII Society’s President and Chairman of the Governing Council. The Ministry has officially informed us of the decision, according to Sayyid Rabeehashmi, registrar of the FTII.
Twelve people have been nominated by the FTII Society, which is led by the FTII chairperson. Eight of these nominees fall under the “Persons of Eminence” category, while four are FTII alumni. while actor Anupam Kher was designated institute chair in October 2017, the Ministry broke with convention by not nominating the members while selecting the chairperson.
Since no additional nominations have been made, the Ministry appears to have followed suit with Madhvan’s appointment. A Governing Council, an Academic Council, and a Standing Finance committee are constituted from among the members once the required 24 members—including 12 ex-officio members—have been reached. These committees subsequently make important decisions regarding the administrative, academic, and financial issues facing the institute.
Madhavan is well-known for his roles in blockbuster movies like “3 Idiots,” “Tanu Weds Manu,” and “Rang De Basanti.” With “Rocketry: The Nambi Effect,” which also received the Best Feature Film Award at the 69th National Awards presented last week, he made his directorial debut. Along with Anant Mahadevan and Rahul Pandey, Madhavan co-wrote the screenplay and performed in it as well.
