Taapsee Pannu comes out to defend Kareena Kapoor 

Taapsee Pannu shows the image of a bold and upstanding woman through her characters and she sure lives up to it. Recently, she came out to defend actress Kareena Kapoor was being target by toxic netizens for allegedly demand a hefty price for a upcoming film. Apparently, Kareena was approached for the titular role in a film based in Sita Ma. Some netizens with nothing worthwhile to do were agitated when she demanded 12 crore INR for her part. This was a hike from her usual fees of 6-8 crores.

In a industry where male stars, demand close to 100 crores for a project and are applauled for it, criticising a woman for asking a fraction of it is really terrible. People even wanted her to work for free since the character carries religious sentiments.

Taapsee said in an interview, "If it would have been a man in that position, who would have asked for a particular amount, it would have been looked upon like, 'iski market badh gayi hai (his worth has improved)'. Like that guy has really achieved big success in life. But because a woman is asking for it, she's called 'difficult', 'too demanding'. It's always like that."

She added, "You'll always read about this problem issue of hiked salary with women. But why not? She is one of the biggest female superstars we have in the country. If she commands a certain salary for her time, it's her job. Do you think any other mythological characters that are played by men, do you think they do it for free? I don't think so."
