The man behind the Vogue's My Choice video has finally broken his silence. After a viral video that was criticised and appreciated equally, Homi Adajania, the director of the Vogue's My Choice video took to Facebook defending his take and addressing all the criticism that has been levelled against it.  Saying that he had been away from network coverage for a long while, he wrote on his Facebook wall, “I want to restate that our film  is a reminder that all women's choices, however unconventional anyone can imagine, are their own. The intention of the film does not in any way advocate or promote the actions in the words and we all have to make choices in life after considering the consequences.” “It's a two-&-a-half minute clip that obviously can't cover such a complex issue and is simply a form of expression to underline the fact that a woman's choice, in no uncertain terms, belongs to her and no one else” He went on to address some of the most severe criticisms the video had been facing. “For those who got this and still didn't agree with the film that is their choice and I totally respect that. For those who felt the message was unclear and are upset in anyway, I promise that was never my intention. For those who think it is sexist or male-bashing, it is talking to a man with a caged-mind and NOT to liberated people out there who treat women with respect and equality.” He also acknowledged how the video went viral in the first place and said that it wasn’t necessarily a bad thing. “Ironically, the misunderstanding is what made #MyChoice go explosively viral and if that’s what it takes to get people discussing gender equality then I am willing to take the hit and be misunderstood”. The video has gone on to receive mixed responses from everyone, including the likes of Sonakshi Sinha and Sonam Kapoor who have been generous in dishing out criticism against the two and a half minute video.
