"People have forgotten that I am an actress, they don't take me seriously. First it was my dressing sense then my opinionated nature, both have overshadowed my identity of a performer. I can't change both the things, they are part of me," Sonam said.

The actor, known for grabbing headlines for her candid nature, says she is proud that unlike other actors, she does not shy away from making her opinions public.

"I will always speak my mind, in fact, I feel many in our industry don't say what they want to, which is sad. But I can't be like them," said the actor, who feels she is underrated in the industry.

"All the directors of mine say I am underrated in the industry. I don't know what to do about it, I guess I have not restricted myself to a particular image on screen, I have always done different roles. A single image stays with people but I can't do that," she said.
