Web Desk(April 05, 2018): Taapsee Pannu, currently in Amritsar for shooting ‘Manmarziyan’ with Abhishek Bachchan and Vicky Kaushal, has been praised for her work in films like ‘Pink’ and ‘Naam Shabana’. With a decent line-up of films ahead, she’s among the most desirable leading ladies in Bollywood.
The actor recently opened up about pay parity and underlined its existence across industries. Taapsee told a daily, “It’s being highlighted by a lot of people lately, which is good. At least people have started talking about it. I’d love to get paid the same as my male co-actors but I also need to question myself if it’s fair.I can’t forcefully burden the producer asking for equal pay if it is not me who is fetching the audience to the theatres. Our industry is so star-driven. The day I became a star and the audience come to theatres thinking ‘Yeh iski movie hai toh dekhne chalte hain’, I will be able to command equal pay.”
