Vogue India’s ‘My Choice’ video, starring Deepika Padukone, seems to have induced��many different reactions. ��While some are in favour of the video, others feel it is offensive and does not actually promote women empowerment. ��Kalki Koechlin recently shared her views on the video.
Speaking to PTI, Koechlin said, “It is a very good thing that she has done, going out and saying what your choices are. If a man goes out at night and leaves his home, nobody is going to ask him where he is going… If a woman does, you are going to ask her where she is going. So, in that vein, this is the spirit of the video.”
However, understanding that the video has upset a section of the public Koechlin went on to add, “…what this video has become is this boys vs girls drama, like feminists are man-haters, this is a big disillusion because feminism means equality and men can be feminist too so I think it would be a great to do a video of my choice where there are both men and women.”
The video has been directed by Homi Adajania, who has directed Bollywood movies such as Padukone starrer ‘Cocktail’ (2012). ��It can be noted that the filmmaker’s��wife, Anaita Shroff Adajania, is the fashion director for Vogue India.
