The ‘Om Shanti Om’ actress issued an official statement on her Instagram story. She also called it an ‘enriching experience.’ In her statement, Deepika wrote, “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 MAM 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,” wrote DP.
