THE HUGE DISPARITY IN PAY BETWEEN MEN AND WOMEN IS UNFAIR: HEROINES
Other heroines such as Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone have also spoken up on the issue. “It is very, very unfair that we get paid the way we do. I think the disparity is way too much. We get paid like one fourth of what the men get paid,” Anushka was quoted as saying earlier. Actor Vidya Balan also said, “There is still a lot of disparity in the pay cheques of male and female actors.” Actor-producer Ajay Devgn says that the pay should depend on the contribution of an actor to the project. “As a producer, I wouldn’t mind paying female actors at par with male actors if it’s justified,” he told us.
