Disparity in income between male actors and female actors
Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have raised the issue of disparity in income between actors and actresses.
The two leading heroines have long stood up against the issue of income disparity between actors and actresses because it is a subject close to their hearts.
On the sets of Bajirao Mastani where the two star, they talked about the disparity in income.
“Deepika and I were talking about how there’s a huge disparity between men and women. Not just here, but globally,” Priyanka said.
She also pointed out that the disparity is not only in movies but in other fields as well.
“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’,” Priyanka said with a big smile on her face even as Deepika Padukone burst out laughing.
