Filmmaker Amole Gupte is now Chairman, Children’s Film Society of India

The creator of children’s films such as Taare Zameen Par and Stanley Ka Dabba, Amole Gupte seems like the perfect person to take over from Nandita Das

After actor-director Nandita Das, another actor-director – Amole Gupte  – is set to take over the reigns of the Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI). The filmmaker says he is honoured to be a part of it.“It is about the agenda of Children’s Film Society of India (CFSI), it is honourable to be part of it. I cannot doubt the qualities of it. Because I am very well connected with the children, I will try to carry it forward,” said Gupte.

Gupte is known for making critically acclaimed children-oriented films like Taare Zameen Par and Stanley Ka Dabba. He also conducts filmmaking workshops for children in Mumbai, and has acted in movies like Vishal Bhardwaj’s Kaminey, his own directorial Stanley Ka Dabba and Santosh Sivan’s Urumi.

As he prepares to take on the responsibility of the CFSI chairperson, the director is all praise for Nandita and says she did a good job during her tenure, producing the award-winning film Gattu. “I believe Nandita has done a wonderful job before. I hope to bring forth many more Gattus and Stanleys,” he said.

All the best to Amole Gupte for his tenure as Chairman, CFSI!
