Kalki supports Deepika's video 'My Choice'

NEW DELHI: Bollywood actress Kalki Koechlin, who shared screen space with Deepika Padukone in 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani', has expressed her views on Deepika’s online video ‘My Choice’, saying “The clip shows that women can be in control of their life.”

While supporting the video ‘My Choice’ directed by Homi Adajania, Kalki said, “If a man goes out at night and leaves his home, nobody asks him where he is going, but if a woman does, she is asked where she is going. Hence, this is the spirit of the video.”

Kalki, 31, further said, “I’m not saying that this is the only way to empower people but it is one step of showing that women can be on top and can have the choice.”

The video 'My Choice', based on women empowerment, was released a few weeks back and got mixed reaction from the viewers, with some calling it elitist, while others praising it as a step in the right direction.

I dont know why people are outraged by #MyChoice video. It is just a parody mocking our undeveloped country's gender biased laws and she has sent out a very good message to society. The message in video is - for example if she marries some rich industrialist like Siddharth Mallya and decides to have consensual sex outside of marriage with Ranbir Kapoor or Ranveer Singh or both then she boasts in the comedy parody video that she cannot be tried for adultery (IPC Section 497). But both those men can be tried because it is India. Also if husband finds out and decides to leave her, she can file 498A Domestic Violence, Unnatural sex, etc., because it is "her choice".. Also Prakash Padukone has no choice to advice his daughter if she does indecent exposure (IPC section 294) in a country full of impressionable children and women who follow her as a "role model" and later takes depression pills when the society talks ill off their morals. Because It is "her choice" and only women can make "choices" because all women are abla naris who want "freedom" whether it is right or wrong freedom. Get the joke in that parody comedy video directed by Homi Adajania?
