Chauvinism and inequality spread their roots long time back in the film industry. Remember how Patricia Arquette created a stir with her Oscar acceptance speech in 2015, when she talked about unequal wages in Hollywood and received some inevitable criticism.
Later, Jennifer Lawrence spoke out after Sony was hacked, revealing an immense pay gap throughout Hollywood. The pay gap difference is not only a part of Hollywood, in fact, actresses in Bollywood are also affected by the same.
Recently, journalist Anupama Chopra discussed the matter with all major Bollywood actresses, and asked about their opinions on the same. What the actresses revealed was a matter of concern and needs much attention.
Here is the video of the same:
While Jacqueline Fernandez quoted that she was told about always looking good and maintaining herself, Sonam Kapoor lashed out for not being offered a good pay in her upcoming film ‘Veere Di Wedding’.
“As a woman in the industry, I don’t get my price’ – Sonam Kapoor
When Bollywood A-listers are raising the big issue for the betterment of each woman working in the industry, it is high time producers and film-makers must do something about it. After all, women manage many things at a time!
