“We should be supportive of people who have opinions good, bad or ugly. Everyone should have a right to speak no matter what. I went through this last year. I said something and I was trolled to another level but at the end of the day I was like if I have this platform and voice people actually listen to what I have to say. I am going to keep doing it no matter what. Eventually somebody will listen to what I have to say,” emphasised Sonam.

Each time your mouth opens it proves to be disastrous, you school drop out , go take acting cles to save yourself from embarrment. Who encouraged you to be an actor hopeless woman, wants to make news. .

              Madam Sonam, everybody has the freedom of expression. If I do not like what they say, will you not allow me to say it openly ? How can you be so intolerant ?

                Actors and actresses want to have apple and eat it too! They are celebrities and there b value is due to the image they have created in the mind of people about themselves. If after encashing this b value they want to freely express their mind then they should be ready for a hit on their b value. This is real world!

                  The Khans thought they can influence the thought process of Indians by impressing them through their average films. They have got a piece of the Indian mind who cannot be influenced by these jihadi thoughts. I hope they keep their tails under their legs and go about their jobs and not try to change Indian society back to middle ages with the help of their kin in stan.

                    So, basically anyone should only do wah-wah on what they have said. No negative criticism allowed?

                      It only goes to prove that actors are what they are!!! They can repeat scripts written by others and mimic the character created by others!!! Let them not try to become opinion makers, especially on the nation and its character!!! Media glorification may be gives them the feeling that they are somebody and opine on anything

                        These two anti nationl s are VVIPs in India because of people mostly Hindus. Aamir was even representing India as "Increditable India", while Indian government reached out of the way to vouch for S R Khan when he was detained in US few years back. And these guys talk of intolerance in India. Aamir made fun of Hindu God Shiva in his movie PK while "My name is Khan" was successful move in India. These guys have been very dishonest

                                  They should be hesitant because they were talking total politically biased nonsense and now they will have to use their brain before speaking.

                                    If SRK and AK speak, it is called Freedom of Speech. If we speak, it is called Trolling.

                                            Srk ,aamir, saif , kabir , farah, farhaan etc should be thoroughly gagged and their nefarious nexus with dawood b@stard should be unearthed. Highly likely that all their movies are funded by dawood b@stard. These so called 3 rate bollywoodias should be tried and hanged at the earliest.
