Ashton has earlier praised Alia Bhatt's short film on woman's safety which was titled Going Home, directed by none other than Vikas Bahl of Queen fame with whom she is working again in Shaandaar co-starring Shahid Kapoor.
In "My Choice," director Homi Adajania has teamed up with Padukone and several other celebrities like Adhuna Akhtar and his wife, Anaita Shroff to highlight women empowerment.
The film is a montage of 99 Indian women of all ages ranging from actress Nimrat Kaur to author and film critic Anupama Chopra and set to Deepika Padukone's narration.
The video has been a subject of debate in India ever since it made its way online, with certain sections calling it elitist, while others praised it as a step in the right direction.
On the professional front she is busy shooting for Tamasha and Bajirao Mastani while Piku co-starring Amitabh Bachchan is up for release.
