Earlier, at the opening ceremony of the film festival, Deepika had said, "Cinema has the power to make us less lonely. In the age of digital streaming and social media that is slowly but surely isolating us, Mumbai Academy of Moving Images (MAMI) binds us without boundaries, inhibitions and most importantly without fear. As an artist, who truly believes in the power of cinema, I say we need this more than ever before."!
