Amid the Padmavatirow, actress Deepika Padukone has decided not to attend the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) to be held on November 28 in Hyderabad, reports said. 

US president's daughter Ivanka Trump and Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be attending the high-profile two-day event with entrepreneurs from across the world set to attend the event.

The summit will be attended by thousands of entrepreneurs, investors and ecosystem supporters from around the world which is themed ‘Women First, Prosperity for All’.

An official of the Telangana government informed on Monday that Deepika had withdrawn her name from the summit after confirming her participation earlier. 

The star was supposed to address one of the sessions 'Hollywood to Nollywood to Bollywood: The Path to Moviemaking.’ 

Her reason to pull out of the summit remains unknown, reports stated. 

Deepika is at the centre of the row surrounding her movie Padmavati with the Rajput Karni Sena threatening her over her depiction of the Rajput princess.
