Kangana Ranaut on equal pay off: An actor’s pay must be determined by the amount of work he or she does

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut is one of those celebrities who likes to speak her mind and not afraid of anyone. She is not diplomatic like there are many in the film industry.

Like Kangana raised her voice on many issues, she also has raised the issue of pay equally too, and in a recent interview talked about the need for women to stand together.

Kangana spoke in an interview about women should stand with each other and support each other, “When I was fighting for equal pay, many women from my industry started fake articles that they are getting this, that. They started hiking their salaries through their PRs. They do not understand how they are harming themselves. What (change) can happen like this- by running someone down and overriding their cause with your own personal agendas? We have got to collectively fight for it. Women have such an inferiority complex that they genuinely believe “ki itna mil raha hai bahot hai, aur kya chahiye tumko” (You are already getting so much. Why do you want more?”

Earlier, while speaking on this topic, Kangana had said, “Here are women in the industry who says that if actresses are unable to bring in crowds (in a theatre) that a male star can, how can they demand equal pay. If we, as actresses, keep dropping this inferiority complex in girls, there is no hope for better times”.

Kangana further added that “Personally, my logic for pay off has always been that I have 365 days to work, as much as any male star. An actor’s pay must be determined by the amount of work she or he does. Your gender is no yardstick for it.”

Well, more power to you Kangana as you speaking not only for yourself but for other women too. Kudos!
