Actress Priyanka Chopra feels one is entitled to his or her opinion, but in the last few years people in India have been “bashed” for expressing their point of view.

When asked about the criticism superstars Shah Rukh Khan and Aamir Khan have received for expressing their views on ‘intolerance’ recently, Priyanka said, “It is not just about this. I think everyone has an opinion about it. We are supposed to be the greatest democracy in the world.”

“There have been many incidents that have happened in the last few years where people have been bashed for giving their opinions. Everybody has an opinion. We are in a democracy. Our forefathers fought for freedom of speech and being Indian,” the actress said in an interview here.

Recently, Aamir Khan joined the debate against ‘growing intolerance’ in India, saying, he has been “alarmed” by a number of incidents and his wife Kiran Rao even suggested that they should probably leave the country.
