“I think that he should listen to the students,” Salman Khan said during the promotion of his upcoming movie ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’.
Meanwhile, director Kabhir Khan said that the government should not intrude in the decisions related to the FTII.
The students of the FTII have refused to call off their strike over Chauhan’s appointment as the chairman of the institute.
The students have been protesting against Chauhan’s appointment due to his affiliation to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and his lack of experience and stature.
A billboard at the entrance of the institute had last week asked Chauhan to resign and leave.
Other student groups have been protesting against the decision as well, with organisations like the AISA encouraging Chauhan to quit.
