The News Minute | March 30, 2015 | 06:28 pm IST Homi Adjania's recent video, which is a part of Vogue magazine's "Vogue Empower" initiative and stars Deepika Padukone, conveys a very powerful message- that of a woman's choice. While there have been many who have applauded the now viral video, others have expressed feeling otherwise. While some have expressed their disapproval for the choice of words used in the video, journalist and documentary film-maker, Deepika Bharadwaj's post on the subject has won quite a bit of approval. A screenshot of the note that she shared has been doing the rounds on social media with her explaining her strong opposition to the lines used in the video. She says, " If it is your choice to have sex outside marriage, it should be his choice too. Don't then call him a womanizer or get offended if he calls you a .... because what opinion he has of you is his choice! If he wants to marry a fair, beautiful girl don't call him sexist...because it is his choice to choose the partner he wants." "If he wants to marry a woman who brings with her lot of wealth during marriage for his better life... don't call him a dowry seeker because it is his choice." LadiesFinger said they decided to read in the video, and their conclusion was: "My choice to be the other in your fantasies. My black and white. My full HD. My slow-motion. Wake up. You have loose motion." Read the full article here. One video titled "My Choice - Male version", which is on the lines of the original, has been uploaded on YouTube. This video starts on a similar note, but attempts to highlight and respond to one point made in the original- "My choice to have sex outside marriage."
