Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan’s recent statements on intolerance had snowballed into a huge controversy attracting negative criticism that adversely affected both superstars. Post the controversy, the actors are guarded in their reactions towards issues not concerning their professional commitments. Actress Sonam Kapoor feels such negative criticism have only made actors afraid in expressing their opinions freely.
Speaking at launch of her film Neerja’s new song, Aankhein Milayenge Darr Se, Sonam told IndianExpress.com, “Just imagine the way we are reacting to Shah Rukh or Aamir Khan. They will be afraid to say or talk about things because of negative reactions.”
Sonam believes it is important to put out one’s opinion openly and fearlessly in our country. The actress also feels it is important to support people with opinions irrespective of the nature of their opinions.

“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.
