Legendary actor Tom Alter has announced his retirement from Pune FTII acting department. The veteran super star unveiled the reason behind his resignation that he was not able to carry out the academic activities properly. Inability to monitor the significant tasks in that department entailed him to take this decision and say goodbye to Film and Television Institute of India.

When asked about this issue in detail, the chief elucidated that Alter had sent him an email in which he had clearly mentioned about his resignation.

He had threatened the pupils of resigning from the post of Head of the Department of acting. Today, on 6th of June, he revealed that he has resigned from the institute and will focus on his personal matters.
Some of the senior students too expressed their own opinions about this illustrious coach. Dewas Dixit, a second year acting student said , “Tom sir is a very strict guide who used to put three conditions before having an interaction with us. Though we all ratified to adopt his instructions, he has now unyoked himself from us.”
