Mumbai, April 3: Actress Kangana Ranaut says the video My Choice starring Deepika Padukone must be appreciated for the effort towards promotion of women empowerment, but she is of the view that empowerment cannot happen by becoming sexists. “Women empowerment does not mean you create complex among men. Then it will take 20 more years to empower men. It is all about evolving as a soul, as a human being. It does not mean that you become a sexist,” Kangana said here on Thursday at an event where she was asked about her views on the video.

My Choice, directed by Homi Adajania, calls for a change in the mindset of men about women and asks them to stop judging women for their choices of clothes, profession and life. The video shows actress Deepika Padukone talking about the freedom of choice that women must have regarding multiple issues, including having the choice to indulge in sex before marriage or out of marriage or not having sex at all.
Kangana says she hasn’t watched the video yet. “But I am glad that people are contributing in their own way. Everyone has different expectations but it should be appreciated for the efforts they are putting in,” she added.
