Have you guys seen Deepika Padukone’s #MyChoice video? I watched it and honestly, I didn’t like it. There are so many objectionable things in the video and I think, the video was simply degrading the image of women. I don’t support Deepika this time. I mean by creating this video they are making a woman look weak while we are not. I do not understand what message they want to convey? feminism is not about making the same mistakes as men and justifying it as our choice, we don’t need special attention and we don’t need a video saying women should be treated differently, what we actually want is a video that talks about how both men and women need to be treated equally! Sometimes overthinking is the big cause of unhappiness, so please don’t create issues, don’t make life more difficult for women or I would say for middle class and rural women, respect both WOMEN & MEN we’re two sides of coin but incomplete without each other.
I read somewhere that it is made for rural people, well I don’t think so… because if it is so then why is it in English? it would have been made in Hindi no? so the thoughts can change the mindset of rural people…..right no? I think, most Indians do not understrand English properly, then how will they understand the message? And by showing your erotic images in the video you’re talking about women empowerment and women’s condition in rural areas, seriously? I am shocked! Miss Deepika Padukone, do you even know, what is the condition of women in rural areas? Try and bother yourself to go in a Indian villages to find out the hard hitting reality, the ordeal of the women in the rural India is unbearable. Anyway, Women Empowerment means equality between the two, it doesn’t mean one is superior to the other and this video and your message is totally nonsense. I hope our young generation doesn’t take it seriously, its just a marketing gimmick. There are far more concerning issues about women’s rights than this. And one sec, just look who’s talking I mean, someone who has lambasted Ranbir Kapoor in public should better keep her mouth shut about her own CHOICE.
By the way, have you guys heard about Saina Nehwal? She is also a Indian girl, and now she is world’s #1 badminton player. I mean, how I admire her, she is a role model for me. And she should be India’s role model, I would like sons of India to be LIKE her. All India’s children to have skills like her. She is the best and She doesn’t need to make a video to say #MyChoice. She LIVES her choice. SALUTE YOU SAINA! Now see, one side we have Deepika and other side Saina, they both are women, both are in professions that are highly competitive and both face fame, critisism, love, fear, anxiety, insecurities and etc. Both have choices and here is what they choose to do with it. Saina made us and our country proud. And yes! I choose Saina Nehwal as my role model for empowering women because she walks the talk. By becoming the FIRST INDIAN WOMAN to be ranked No.1 in badminton in the WORLD, Saina has trashed a lot of naysayers. I can’t even estimate the pressure this 25 year old bears while she fights her way to the top, quashing the so far informidable Chinese and instead of wearing make up and crying in front of the camera about her insecurities, she remained determined, focused and committed to her passion and see where it has brought her. 🙂 After losing the world cup 2015, we were all very disappointed but so what if 11 men couldn’t bring home the cricket honors? See what a young determined WOMAN is capable of? Well, I have nothing against Deepika, I love her acting and beauty but yes for this video, NO…I AM SORRY!!!! I know, She is a public figure but according to me, what she signs up for under the banner of “women empowerment” should be well thought of and planned. Her video was more about making choices according to her whims. Oh god! How can women be empowered by that??
Anyways, this was my opinion on Deepika’s #MyChoice. I eagerly want to know your opinion…..so want to share? 🙂
