'For every actor to be an activist, on every topic is ridiculous. We are human beings at the end of the day...'

Recently Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin, Richa Chadha and Anushka Sharma got together for a roundtable discussion with Rajeev Masand.

Deepika raises the point that if an actor says something that goes along with the views of the majority, then everybody immediately puts them on a pedestal, but if an actor voices an opinion which is slightly against the majority, then we've seen what happens in such cases, like the Shahrukh and Aamir controversy.
