On Friday, 1st September 2023, The Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB) appointed actor R. Madhavan as president and chairperson of the of the Governing Council of Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Society.

 

Madhavan has replaced filmmaker Shekhar Kapur who was appointed as the president of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) Society and the chairman of the governing council in 2020.

 

The FTII Society, led by the FTII chairwoman, has 12 nominations, eight of whom are in the 'Persons of Eminence' category and four of whom are FTII alumnus. 

 

The Ministry appears to have followed suit with Madhvan's appointment, as no other nominations have been made. Once a quorum of 24 members, including 12 ex-officio members, is reached, the members create a Governing Council, an Academic Council, and a Standing Finance committee, which subsequently makes crucial decisions about the institute's administrative, academic, and financial concerns.
