Deepika’s video comes from a good space: Sonakshi

Mumbai: Actress Sonakshi Sinha thinks Deepika Padukone’s online video “My Choice” comes with good intentions but feels more needs to be done on women empowerment. Deepika’s two-minute-34-second video, has gone viral online but opinions are divided over its content with some hailing the move while others calling it unrealistic.

Sonakshi, who is yet to watch the video, believes that women empowerment is not always about the choice of “having sex and clothes of a woman”. “I haven’t watched the video but I know about the thought behind it that is women empowerment… it comes from a good space but honestly I believe empowerment should be given to those women who need it, far away from where we are right now.

“I also feel that it is not always about who you want to have sex with and the kind of clothes you wear. It is about employment, strength and stuff like that. So it is a good initiative but I think it needs to reach out to people who actually need it, the deep ends of society,” Sonakshi said.
