New Delhi: The leading ladies of Bollywood, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, will be seen together in director and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali's magnum opus project ‘Bajirao Mastani'. While the two actresses have a tight schedule, they do catch up when they get time.
You must be wondering what they talk about when they get time. Is it their personal lives, their relationships or do they gossip about other actresses?
No, they don't. Deepika and Priyanka discuss pay disparity in the industry.
Rumours have it that on the sets of ‘Bajirao Mastani' they discussed the difference in the pay of actors and actresses. Talking to a leading daily, PC said, “Deepika and I were talking about how there's a huge disparity between men and women. Not just here, but globally.”
She also added, “Not just in this business, but in any job of authority. Male CEOs get paid a lot more than female CEOs. So to be taken seriously as women, it'll be a battle that lasts a long time. I think I always have that kind of attitude and believe Deepika has that attitude as well. People keep making fun of us on the sets, calling it our ‘big talk.”
Asked about her opinions on this matter, she said, “I have had a point of view on this since the time I joined movies. I came from a very academic background. So I didn't initially understand the disparity between men and women so much. In my first few films, once I was told by my producer that girls are interchangeable. Hero nahi change kar sakte, but agar aapki dates match nahi kar rahi ya aap ek certain remuneration maang rahe ho, toh aap jao. Hum nayi ladki launch kar denge.”
Now that industry actresses have started opening up about this, maybe it is time the film fraternity paid attention. Because, definitely the actresses are united on this front.
