“I am someone who likes to work and express my perspectives where I can see change. Actors are brought on platforms and are expected to give our opinions on everything. Why are businessmen not asked these questions, why does someone not ask Ratan Tata what he thinks about Aarey, why are cricketers not asked about MeToo. You can ask me whatever question you want, but why subject it only to a film star? As responsible, should we not have an opinion? All our opinions should matter then, right?”
