Deepika Padukone steps down as MAMI chairperson

Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood superstar Deepika Padukone has stepped down as the chairperson of the Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI), two years after serving the post.

In a post on an Instagram story, Deepika said, "Being on the board of MAMI and serving as Chairperson has been a deeply enriching experience. As an artist it was invigorating to bring together cinema and talent from all over the world to Mumbai, my second home.

"I have come to realise however, that with my current state of work, I will be unable to give MAMI the undivided focus and attention it requires.

"I depart knowing that MAMI is in the best hands possible and that bond and connection with the academy is one that will last a lifetime."

In 2019, Deepika had replaced Kiran Rao as the MAMI chairperson.

On the work front, Deepika is presently busy in shooting for Shakun Batra's film which also stars Siddhant Chaturvedi and Ananya Panday in the leads.

Besides, she will reunite with Shah Rukh Khan in Pathan.
