Entertainer Priyanka Chopra Jonas was reported as the chairperson of the MAMI Film Festival just about four months after Deepika Padukone resigned from the job. The Mumbai Academy of Moving Image (MAMI) uncovered its arrangements for the coming year, release, and initiative adjustment.
Chopra Jonas was consistently designated by MAMI's Board of Trustees which includes Nita M Ambani (Co-Chairperson), Anupama Chopra (Festival Director), Ajay Bijli, Anand G. Mahindra, Farhan Akhtar, Isha Ambani, Kabir Khan, Kaustubh Dhavse, Kiran Rao, Rana Daggubati, Riteish Deshmukh, Rohan Sippy, Siddharth Roy Kapur, Vikramaditya Motwane, Vishal Bhardwaj and Zoya Akhtar.
The 'Quantico' star said she is "pleased" to become the chairperson of the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
Chopra Jonas said she anticipates working close by stalwart ladies in the group and taking the celebration "to a higher level."
"I've taken off running... with thoughts, musings, and plans on rethinking the celebration to track down its legitimate spot in a world that has changed such a vast amount in a brief time frame.
"We're all devouring film and amusement distinctively now, and all the while, we've extended the impression of the film that we watch. I have consistently been an immense ally and devotee to films from across India, and together, we desire to make a solid stage to feature Indian film to the world," Chopra Jonas said in a proclamation.
Isha Ambani, Board of Trustees, MAMI, said the group is excited to have the 39-year-old star ready.
