When asked about the criticism superstars Shahrukh Khan and Aamir Khan have received for expressing their views on 'intolerance' recently, Priyanka Chopra told a leading daily,"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."
Priyanka Chopra further added, "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.''

At a recent media event, Aamir Khan had said, ''Kiran and I have lived all our lives in India. For the first time, she said, should we move out of India? That's a disastrous and big statement for Kiran to make to me. She fears for her child. She fears about what the atmosphere around us will be. She feels scared to open the newspapers everyday. That does indicate that there is a sense of growing disquiet.''
Earlier this month, Shahrukh Khan too was severely attacked by a section of the political class for his remarks on 'growing intolerance' in India.
