“It’s about the quality of female role that you have. It’s about choosing a role that is inspirational for women,” she added. Sonam also asserted that she is not outspoken, but just “honest” about her opinion. “I don’t think I am outspoken. I am straight forward and honest and I believe as an Indian, it’s imperative to have an opinion especially in the atmosphere that we are living in. There is a general downward spiral that the world is going in. Anybody who has an opinion, it’s important to speak up,” the actress said.
