Deepika Padukone to be absent from Met Gala 2024 amid shoot for Singham Again and Kalki 2898 AD release

Actress Deepika Padukone has graced the renowned Met Gala for three consecutive years in the past. However, in 2024, she will be notably absent from the event. A source close to the development has shared that Deepika has given her dates for her upcoming projects, which coincide with the fashion extravaganza. She is currently busy in the filming of Singham Again and gearing up for the release of her next film, Kalki 2898 AD.

A highly-placed source revealed, "Deepika Padukone has been a regular on the Met Gala Red Carpet. It is only natural for fans to anticipate her appearance at this year’s Met Gala, especially considering she is one of India’s biggest global brand ambassadors. However, Deepika is in the midst of filming for Singham 3 which is slated to release later this year along with Kalki 2898 AD which is slated to release in May, both of which coincide with this year’s Met Gala. She will therefore not be attending this year's event.”
