Accused of being a tad bit ‘female chauvanistic’, the video has sparked an online debate on the line that needs to be drawn in femeinsm.

Twitter has #MyChoice and Vogue trending in India since yesterday as well. Spoofs have emerged inevitably, and the most significant one was the male version of ‘My Choice’. The video takes on the ‘cheating outside of marriage’ statement in the video , and questions on why it conveniently does not apply on men.

The most recent one is the Govinda mashup that is downright hilarious and is winning everyone’s heart on the Internet. The video was blocked by Youtube claiming, “This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by Conde Nast India.” However, trolls triumphed and have reuploaded the video on separate channels.
