A lot has been said about Deepika’s My Choice video. Some supported it, while some lashed out at it. The latest to air his views about the video is Farhan Akhtar.
At today’s event when a scribe asked him for his reaction after seeing the video, he said, “What Deepika shared with us was her personal opinion about a few things and we should be happy that she is sharing such personal things with us. There is no law that forbids us to share our opinion, so I don’t know what all the fuss is about. She is not telling us to do all those things, she is just saying that it her choice to do those things. I think it’s okay as anybody can say what their choice is. I feel it’s exceptional that she came out and bravely supported this cause. She also said it’s ok to agree with it and it’s even ok to not agree with it, so I don’t have any problem with it whatsoever.”
Note worthy that Farhan Akhtar is a strong advocate for holistic women’s empowerment, and advocates the cause through his foundation “MARD’.
