According to Mumbai Mirror, Kiran welcomed Deepika, who was earlier on the board of trustees, saying,

“Deepika has been a supporter of the festival and part of our Board of Trustees, and is a person whose ethos and work I greatly admire. I am sure that under her leadership the Academy will become stronger and more robust in serving the cinema community.”
