Deepika Padukone, who was appointed as the chairperson of Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) in 2019, has announced her departure from MAMI.
DeePee announced her decision on Instagram writing, “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 slate of work, I will be unable to give MAMI the undivided focus and attention it requires,” she further added. DeePee had replaced Kiran Rao, as the chairperson, in 2019.
On the work front, she has her platter full. She will be seen opposite Ranveer Singh in ’83. She is also playing the lead role in Shakun Batra’s next, which also stars Ananya Panday and Siddhant Chaturvedi. DeePee will be seen sharing screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in the Hindi adaptation of The Intern.
