Sonam Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin join Sonakshi Sinha in criticizing Deepika Padukone and Homi Adjania's 'My Choice' video for women empowermentNew Delhi: Deepika Padukone's #MyChoice video has shaped distinct opinions on women empowerment. While the entire nation has come demarked on the issue, Bollywood too has its own say on it.
Even though the fight seems to be more on a particular idea of having sex outside marriage than various other notions portrayed in the video, Deepika Padukone is still silent.
Off lately Sonakshi Sinha voiced out her point of view and stated that no woman need to have sex outside marriage in order to prove that she is powerful, actresses Sonam Kapoor and Kalki Koechlin too possess their own ideologies on the same.
The actress who is as popular for her sarcastic wit as for her smashing beauty, Sonam Kapoor has given quite a straight stance on the issue. In her latest statement, the lady mentioned that she doesn't need any video or platform to let the world know that she is a powerful woman.
"I don't have to make a video to voice my opinions. My actions have always spoken louder than my words. I'm proud to be a woman and I respect my independence. I'm never afraid to give my opinion on any matter. That's what feminism is about," said the actress who is busy shooting 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'.
As the actress whose next also stars Salman Khan further elaborated her stand, she even went-on saying that some women think male-bashing...hated men...makes you a true feminist.
On the other hand, actress Kalki Koechlin who is enough socially active and is known for her rather unique and off-beat choices spoke in random. The lady concluded that though the video has raised quite valid questions, it should have shown a few men too raising the question of equal empowerment.
"It's great that the film has brought about a lot of questioning and debate. It is very true of liberating women to make their own choices and then be responsible for them. But unfortunately, it has become a girls v/s boys debate. Women empowerment is about equality. I wish there were more men in the video along with women where both the sexes would have a say and would discuss their choices", concluded the 'Margarita With a Straw' star.
Well, even though Homi Adjania's #MyChoice effort has gradually faced more flaks than appreciation, we are happy that at least a debate for such significant issue has been incepted!
