You don’t expect a video, that shouts out loud at the very outset that it is about women empowerment, to be great. But when the video features someone as vocal and sensitive like Deepika Padukone and is directed by Homi Adajania, you are ready to kill your skepticism.
As it turns out, despite big names involved and despite its high production quality, it’s just another video that cashes on the issue of women empowerment that clutters our Facebook and Twitter timelines every day.
The theme of the video is “My choice” 99 women — with Padukone as the anchor– declare in the video that it’s their choice “to love temporarily or lust forever”, to have their husband’s baby or not. The voiceover further says that she has chosen the man among seven billion choices and that he is privileged to have her.”
Deepika has issues with TOI for using the word “cleavage” – Deepika’s Choice.

Feminism is something the world is going gaga about, and naturally, it gets attention from everyone, as it is one of the major issues in the society.
In attempt to address the issue, Vogue India released a video starring Deepika Padukone on “Empower Women” – a message that has buzzed social media. Here is the video:

In this video, Deepika talks of Freedom of Choice – Choice a woman can make, Choices that can help empower oneself.
And boys and girls, here are some of the choices:
“To have sex outside marriage, my choice” – “Would you look at your male partner the same way and wouldn’t criticize if he did that either? Your partner HAS the right to criticize your sexual activities outside the relationship, if you are involved in a monogamous relationship,” as Amrita Mukherjee wrote here. BTW, it might cause you AIDS. Be careful.
She is the same girl who wished to gift her ex-boyfriend a pack of condoms because he ditched her. Wasn’t that the guy’s choice then? Or doesn’t he have the right to choice?
“You are my choice, I’m not your privilege, to have your baby or not”- You mean a man shouldn’t have a say about that? Shouldn’t this be a decision of the couple?
“To be a size zero or a 15? – But, you want a boyfriend with six-pack abs. While the guy can’t expect beauty? Amazing standards.
Miss Deepika, size, sexual preferences, and clothes might be feminism to you. Real women in villages or even cities face issues with basic education, girl child abortions, dowry and what not.
Women need empowerment for basic rights, not with sexual choices.
As Emma Watson rightly said, “Feminism isn’t about preferring women over men, It is about equality”.
