Amole Gupte replaces Nandita Das as CFSI chairperson
Amole Gupte has been chosen as the chairperson of the Children's Film Society of India (CFSI), according to the I & B Ministry. He replaces Nandita Das.
Having met the I&B minister Manish Tiwary and accepted the offer earlier, Gupte received the official letter just yesterday.
With an experience in children's film (including Taare Zameen Par and his own directorial Stanley Ka Dabba), Gupte sees the new responsibility as an extension of his work.
"I need to sort out my ideas about how I'll initiate my stint with the CFSI. My predecessor Nandita Das has been doing a very good job. The CFSI's recent film Gattu was exemplary. I hope to bring forth many more Gattus and Stanleys. But first let me catch my breath," Gupte has been quoted to have said.
