Deepika Padukone steps down as chairperson of MAMI

The actor cited her work as the reason behind her decision

Published: 12th April 2021

Actor Deepika Padukone has decided to step down from her position as a chairperson of Mumbai Academy of the Moving Image (MAMI).

Deepika, who took over the position in 2019, said that her “slate of work” is the reason behind the decision. 

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,” she wrote.

“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 added in the note.

On the work front, Deepika will be next seen in the Ranveer Singh-starrer 83. The actor is also shooting for Shakun Batra's yet-to-be-titled film, starring Ananya Pandey and Siddhant Chaturvedi.

Earlier last week, it was announced that Amitabh Bachchan will star opposite Deepika in the Hindi remake of Hollywood hit The Intern.
