Talking about women empowerment during a chat on radio station 92.7 BIG FM, Deepika said: “I don’t think we need a festival to celebrate womanhood. I believe that we need not look forward to Women’s Day, Navratri or any other festival to celebrate what women are all about.
“Women are multi-taskers, extremely strong emotionally and know what they are capable of. My message for every woman is that, we all should have faith in ourselves and should never underestimate our capabilities.”
