Over the years, we’ve got seen Bollywood actresses flip ornaments into main women of movies. Queen to Chhapaak, Mimi, Saand Ki Aankh, the trade has really revolutionized. But regardless of all of it, the actresses must face the problem of sexism, inequality in pay and a lot extra. Here’s what Kriti Sanon has to say about all of it.
A number of B’Town women have spoken on the matter beforehand. Kareena Kapoor Khan not too long ago even made noise over asking for an enormous remuneration for the function of Sita in Ramayana. Several others like Taapsee Pannu, Swara Bhasker amongst others have spoken on the problem too.
Kriti Sanon has herself seen the transformation over time. Talking about sexism and pay disparity, the actress instructed Bollywood Bubble, “I kind of feel that as much as it is unfair, the difference is not the problem, the difference is a lot and that’s the problem. But, having said that I do believe that your remuneration should be proportional to the amount of audience that you are able to pull into the theatre by yourself.”
Kriti Sanon continued, “My point is that a man doesn’t have to do it by doing a male-centric film, but sometimes a female has to prove it by doing a female-centric film and say that this is the audience that she has pulled in. So that little difference is always there. It doesn’t matter how many films you’ve done, it doesn’t matter what your role is in the film, how much of an audience you have as an actor should decide your remuneration.”
The Mimi actress even known as out the patriarchal mindset of society.
“But sometimes my male friends and fans feel that if a Tiger Shroff can pull so many audiences then, of course, his remuneration should be more. But the problem is ki humari sosciety itni zyada patriarchal hai ki woh level is too much,” Kriti Sanon concluded.
