Deepika Padukone Short Film on Women Empower

Deepika Padukone – "My Choice" Directed By Homi Adajania - Vogue Empower:


What happens when 99 women from varying walks of life come together to send out one powerful message?

A collaboration between director Homi Adajania and Bollywood actor Deepika Padukone, and produced by JSW and Sangita Jindal, 'My Choice' is one more short film made dedicated to #VogueEmpower, Vogue India's social awareness initiative. Based on a piece written by Kersi Khambatta, the video has been shot by Tassaduq Hussain.

What can you expect? Imagine shot after shot of women including Nimrat Kaur, Adhuna Akhtar, Anupama Chopra, Scherezade Shroff and more who have made a difference in their respective careers telling you every single thing they see as their right as women. Why 99 women? "I liked the idea of telling people I originally had 100 women planned but God said the last one was too busy right now," says Adajania.

"In my family, my father is the only male in the house, but all of us have a voice,"says Padukone. "I've always been allowed to be who I want to be. When you're not caged, when you don't succumb to expectation, that's when you're empowered."

The aim of the Vogue Empower initiative, launched with the seventh anniversary issue, is to encourage people to think, talk and act in ways big or small on issues pertaining to women's empowerment. The message is simple: It starts with you.





Bollywood star Deepika Padukone, along with 98 other women from Mumbai, has featured in a short film titled My Choice and voiced equality for women in all spheres of life.

The video, which lasts a little over two minutes, is directed by Homi Adjania, with whom Deepika worked in films like Cocktail and Finding Fanny.

The black-and-white video, produced by Dinesh Vijan, features the 29-year-old actress calling for a change in the "caged" mindset of men about women and asking them to stop judging women for their choices of clothes, profession and life.

"It is my choice to live life the way I want, to wear clothes I like, to decide how I want my body to be, when I want to get married or if I ever want to walk down the aisle, to decide if I want to be straight or a lesbian," Deepika said in the film.

Other known faces in the film include actor Farhan Akhtar's wife, celebrity hairstylist Adhuna Akhtar and sister Zoya. Director Homi's wife, Vogue India's fashion director Anaita Shroff, is also a part of the film. All the 99 women are dressed in black outfits.

The short film is a part of #VogueEmpower, Vogue's social initiative on women empowerment, and is penned by Kersi Khambatta, the co-writer of films like Being Cyrus and Finding Fanny.
