The very controversial Gajendra Chauhan, who took charge as the Chairman of the Film and Television Institute of India (FTII) amid protests earlier this month, has said that there were no more protests at the moment.

There are no protests in FTII right now. I have officially joined now and nothing has happened. They are protesting right now against the suicide of the dalit scholar in Hyderabad.
