"Just imagine the way we are reacting to someone like Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir Khan (their comments). They will be afraid to say or talk about things because of the negative reactions. We should be supportive of people who have opinions – good, bad or ugly. Everybody should have a right to speak," said Sonam at the launch of her song, 'Ankhian Milaayenge Darr Se' from the film 'Neerja'.

Shah Rukh's comments on intolerance in the country saw some sections slamming him, while some also vandalised theatres screening his film 'Dilwale', protesting the same. Aamir highlighting his wife's fear due to certain incidents in the country also sparked a widely-discussed controversy.

Sonam termed the reactions to the issues as 'scary'. She is always known to have an opinion, and quips that's the reason she gets called to speak at conclaves, since the organisers 'know she will make good copy'.

She often lands up in controversy for the same like her comments on Ranbir Kapoor along with Deepika Padukone on Karan Johar's show or getting trolled for her 'misogynist' tweet on the meat ban in Mumbai.

A fear she would like to overcome is, 'I don't ever want to not have an opinion on something'.
