New Delhi: AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal has launched his own film institute in a bid to put an end to the FTII fiasco. The stalemate between the Govt and students at FTTI prompted Arvind Kejriwal to use this opportunity to teach the students intricacies of film making.
Speaking to Faking News from New Delhi, the AAP chief said, “It’s not a case of political opportunism, I am deeply concerned about the future of the students at FTII. If these students don’t get the right environment to study, we’ll have mindless movies flooding the market. AAP has all the resources to start a Film Insititute here in Delhi. Our own party workers have hands on experience in drama and will form the core faculty.”
When questioned about the name of the institute he replied, “We are planning to name the institute as AAP Institute of Drama Study (AIDS). Our first institute will be located in Delhi and later we intend to spread AIDS across the country.”
Our sources within the party tell us that AAP leader Ashutosh with take up session on drama and the teach students how to emote in front of the camera while Kumar Vishwas will take session on make-up and beauty.
Students will also be shown audio-visuals of Parliament sessions to help them understand the nuances of drama.
As part of their summer projects, the students will be creating ads for the party and the best ad will get a chance to be featured on TV channels. Arvind Kejriwal will himself review all summer projects, like he has done with the release of Bollywood movies on Friday.
Editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami has also been roped in as guest faculty.
FTII students too are happy. Rakesh Kumar, who joined FTII in 1992 said, “I my 23 years as a student at FTII, I have never witnessed something like this before, referring to the FTII deadlock. I don’t want to waste any more years as a student and hence I am planning to join AIDS.
