Massive wage inequality isn’t just a Hollywood problem – It’s a Bollywood problem, too

Bollywood has actresses who are awarded and applauded for their powerful performances. But when it comes to their paychecks, there’s a notoriously wide gap between men and women.

Its just not Hollywood stars that have spoken out on the disparity in Hollywood, some top Bollywood actresses’ have also shared their point of view;

Priyanka Chopra

“I don‘t like the fact that I get paid much less than the boys. I don‘t like the fact that the disparity is so massive.”

Deepika Padukone

“Instead of whining about it, I look at how different things were earlier and how the situation has improved already.”

Aditi Rao Hydari

“I don’t really understand why we are paid less than the male actors because we put equal efforts and recent past has shown that actresses can deliver a hit film. We deserve better pay, equal to what actors get.”

Kangna Ranaut

My male counterparts are paid thrice the amount. No one can guarantee the success of a film so why such discrimination? I don’t do one scene or one item song in a film. I can only speak for myself and I am commanding certain amount of money, but I still think I am underpaid.”

Sonam Kapoor

“The kind of money John Abraham and Varun Dhawan got to make Dishoom is way more than what Kareena and I are getting to make Veere Di Wedding. I do think Kareena and I could open a film as big as them…I find it really disgusting that this is happening.”

Anushka Sharma

“Even if there’s an actor who probably has the same stature as me…he would still be paid more money than me because he’s a guy… It’s just there. It’s ingrained,” she said in an interview with Film Companion.”
