“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 further added, “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,” and concluded saying this.
