Bollywood actor Taapsee Pannu recently shared her thoughts on the wage gap between male and female actors in Bollywood. She shared her own experiences as well as her opinion on the income disparity.
Pannu said, “If a female actor asks more, she is termed difficult and problematic and if a man asks more it’s a mark of his success. Difference is, the men who started with me earn 3-5 times more than what I do. And the gap keeps increasing as we go in higher star category.”
Talking about the slashed budgets of female-centric films, Taapsee share, “Even now we struggle with budgets. Everyone hears that since it’s a female-driven film budgets will have to be slashed and that’s because our returns are always unfair in comparison to our male counterparts. And audience is a big reason behind that.”
