Taapsee Pannu shares her opinion on pay gap in Bollywood

Actress Taapsee Pannu is often in news regarding her bold statements. She has often opened up about the inadequacies of the film industry. Recently, Taapsee talked about the pay gap among male and female actors. She also talked about how her contemporary male actors now earn way more than her.

She 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.”

She also talked about how female centric movies are neglected by producers as well as audience. She said, "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."
