Deepika Padukone and Homi Adajania’s collaboration video, My Choice, has been causing quite a stir; and we are all aware of it! There has been positive and negative criticism – from parodies to articles. Of course, we expected some backlash (as always) – but this time this action has had an equal AND opposite reaction!
Here’s what Sonakshi Sinha has to say:
I haven’t seen the video but I know the thought behind it, which is women empowerment. And it’s coming from a good space. But, I think it should be given to women who actually need it – women who are far away from where we are right now. We see a lot of luxuries and we’ve been bred and brought up in luxuries. It’s not always about just about you know the kind of clothes you wear or who you want to have sex with or stuff like that! It’s about employment, it’s about strength… it’s about stuff like that. It’s a good initiative but I think it should really reach out to people who actually need it in like the deep ends of this country.
