Actor Deepika Padukone has decided to ‘depart’ from the duties as chairperson of Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI). The actor, who took over the position in 2019, stated her “slate of work” is the reason why she took the step. Deepika, calling the experience as ‘enriching’, stated that her bond with MAMI ‘will last a lifetime’.

On Monday, the actor took to her social media platforms to share the news. “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. I depart knowing that MAMI is in the best hands possible and that my bond and connection with the academy is one that will last a lifetime,” she wrote in a note.

At MAMI 2019, Deepika made her first appearance as the film festival’s chairperson.
