The Vogue video, quite stylishly made with Deepika Padukone talking about choices seems to have stirred up a lot of emotions. Such a video with dubious motives, can still be leveraged to have further conversations about women’s rights or lack thereof, can it not?

In a society where some of the said choices can lead to fatal results, perhaps an exuberant assertion or declaration however illusory, that these choices are ours to make is much needed.  
Of course every choice has a consequence. Especially the life choices talked about in the video go beyond 5 minute sound bites, so needs to be made with utmost responsibility. If not, it is just a masquerade.

In any context it is never useful to talk about choices and freedom without talking about consequences and responsibility.
