When it comes to posting views on various topics on social networking sites, Bollywood actress Sonam Kapoor is very active and feels that as a public figure it is her responsibility to comment on important issues.

Also, she insists that issues command an honest opinion.

"It is very irresponsible to be diplomatic on certain things. Just because you are an actress does not mean you can't have an opinion," said the 28-year-old who is active on Twitter.

"You can't be diplomatic on certain things. I will never talk ill about an actress on a personal front. But if it comes to important things, then I should have an opinion," added the actress who struck gold with her performance in "Raanjhanaa".

Having an opinion isn't risky either.

"It is not risky if I have an opinion about something important. If someone is being sexist, homophobic or if the government is wrong... I will say something. If I think I have said something wrong, then I will apologise for it," she said.

Daughter of Sunita and actor Anil Kapoor, she feels her forthrightness sets an example for other girls.

"If I am someone who is a public figure and cannot have an opinion, the other girls will get scared. I am not as popular as other actresses, but I have a little bit of popularity and I must use that to see how girls are projected," she said.

In "Raanjhanaa" too, the actress played a public figure involved in college politics, but dismissed any similarity between her and her character.

"Zoya is different from me. She is involved in the politics of JNU (Jawaharlal Nehru University). Sometimes when other public figures like politicians and spiritual gurus make some stupid remark, I react to it like other young people on a social platform. I don't think there is anything wrong in it as it encourages other young girls to come forward," she said.
