Film & Television Institute of India (FTII) on Wednesday said noted actor Tom Alter, who had resigned as the head of the Acting department last month, has taken back his resignation.

“I was given the responsibility by academic council to persuade him to take his resignation back and now he has taken his resignation back and will continue as head of the Acting department,” said Bhupendra Kainthola, Director, FTII.

Alter was a very fine and veteran actor and the institute needed him, Kainthola said.

While resigning, Alter had said his other commitments prevented him from devoting time to the FTII assignment.

However, FTII sources said that a strained relationship with the students had also contributed to Alter’s decision.
