The 30-year-old actress, who was addressing the media, opened up about her take on intolerance, an issue that has been making headlines for sometime.
"Intolerance is a very broad term. I have faced racism in many countries. They see brown skin and they judge you already. When I go abroad people already have their perception, like we are always in parda (veil) or our parents are very conservative”, Sonam said.
"Even we are judgemental, we see white skin and think the girl is loose. Judging is in human nature. It is on us to educate people," the actress added.

Actor Aamir Khan had received a lot of backlash for his comments on intolerance and Sonam thinks what the 'PK' star said was not irrelevant, but may be it were 'too extreme'.
Amid the negative environment for artists coming from across border, Sonam, who has worked with Pakistani actor Fawad Khan in 'Khoobsurat', said politics should not interfere in arts and sports.

"The fact that I have worked with Fawad Khan, who is a great actor, is completely separate from the fact that he is a Pakistani”, Sonam said.
