All in the name of progress

upset Resul Pookutty

Resul appealed to politician Rahul Gandhi to save it, as it was set up with Rahul’s great-grandfather Jawaharlal Nehru’s vision.

While he is currently working in Rajasthan on John Madden’s The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, starring Dev Patel, Resul is anguished by the plight of his alma mater.

“In the name of upgradation, the government is trying to privatise the institute and turn it into a profit-making college,” says Resul and adds, “And we will not let anyone mess with its original vision. It’s the only institute in Asia where ordinary students can study art as a faculty.”
