Sonakshi Sinha lashes out at Deepika Padukone


Reacting to Deepika Padukone’s latest women empowerment video, ‘My Choice’, Sonkasi Sinha said that having sex outside marriage is not empowerment. Some section of the society might be lauding Deepika Padukone for effectively sending out a strong message about women empowerment and her choice to lead life in her own way but few people slammed the actress and among them was Sonakshi Sinha.

The ‘Dabangg’ girl is totally against Deepika’s ‘MY Choice’ empowerment video directed by Homi Adajania.

On being asked about her opinion on the video, Sonakshi said, “Women empowerment is not always about the kind of clothes you wear, not about who you want to have sex with or stuff like that. It’s about employment, strength.” Disapproving of the ideas being portrayed as women empowerment,

Sonakshi further said, “It’s a very good initiative. It’s coming from a good space, but honestly I believe empowerment should be given to the women who actually need it, who are kind of far away from where we are right now. We have been bred and brought up with luxury.”

“Women empowerment should reach out to people who actually need it, like the deep ends of this country,” said Sonkashi as she signed off.

Deepika Padukone’s ‘My Choice’ is getting mixed response on social media. In the video, the ‘Ram Leela’ actress speaks about women’s freedom of choice and asked the world not to interfere in a women’s decision and let her live life on her own terms and take her own decisions.

She said it is her choice of what she wants to wear or what she wants to do with her life. A women is an individual and she has all the right to take her own decision regarding her life, career, marriage, children, sex etc.
