Deepika Padukone has been appointed the new chairperson of the MAMI Mumbai Film Festival after Kiran Rao stepped down to focus on a film project.

Deepika Padukone is not only riding high on her acting career with stellar performances but also wins hearts in every sphere of her life. 2018 was a golden year for the actress on both professional and personal front. Her Padmaavat film was one of the biggest blockbusters at the box office regardless of an identity crisis earlier 2018.

She also has become the first woman to break into the top five positions in the Forbes India Celebrity 100 list since its inception in 2012. At the end of last year, she made headlines over her private but extravagant wedding celebration with actor Ranveer Singh.
