Taapsee Pannu opens up on the issue of pay parity in Bollywood!

As per reports, Mission Mangal star Taapsee Pannu has her strong views on the issue of pay parity. The promotion of Mission Mangal is going on and it has five female leads including Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu,Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menen and Kirti Kulhari. Akshay Kumar is also a part of the cast and has been active during the promotions of the movie.
In a latest media chat, Taapsee talked about pay parity and that it is the only issue which she can complain about. Taapsee acknowledged the fact that she is in a great phase of her career but also highlighted that there is a lack of pay parity in Bollywood that bothers her. Taapsee expressed that often she is asked to charge less in a film that is female-driven and that the makers want to cut costs. She even stated that there have been times that the male lead actor’s salary is the entire budget of a female-centric film. Taapsee stated that female actors often don’t get equally paid as male actors.
Taapsee revealed, “A hero’s salary is equal to an entire budget of a female-driven film. Usme bhi mujhe bola jata hai, aap thoda kam charge kar lona. Cost-cutting karenge kyunki yeh female-centric film hai, mainstream nahin. These things hurt a bit. If you are cast in a film where a woman has an equal part as the man, if not more, you don’t get a male A-lister who will be okay to share screen space with you. If women are cast as the protagonists in a film, the male actors who play their partners are never A-listers. On the contrary, girls are ready to play smaller parts opposite top male actors. These things bother me.”
