Few months back, it was rumored that actress Kareena Kapoor has demanded 12 crore rupees in order to play the role of Sita in a film adaptation of Ramayan. Soon after this news broke out, several netizens lashed out at Kareena for "being greedy" and the whole incident also sparked a debate about pay disparity between male and female actors in Bollywood.

In a recent media interaction, Kareena addressed the issue and clarified that she wasn't even offered the part. The actress told Zoom, "I was never offered that film so I don’t know why I was put into that category. I wasn’t a choice for the film. It is all made-up stories, everyday people are looking for something to talk about, and I don’t know where this came from. There are 100 platforms today and so many things are said, so will we do our job, or should we just put out tweets clarifying our stand?”

On the work front, Kareena is currently awaiting the release of her film 'Laal Singh Chaddha' in which she'll be seen sharing screen with her '3 Idiots' and 'Talaash' co-star Aamir Khan.
