Bollywood is still strictly the male domain. The actresses, who really add all the spice and the masala are still underpaid, according to Priyanka Chopra. According to her, there is a huge amount of disparity in the remuneration that the actresses get as against the male actors.
So, it hardly makes a difference if a film is hit and which actress worked in it. As far as Priyanka Chopra is concerned, she has delivered hits like Fashion and more recently, Barfi as well as Dostana.
She defended a question and was a bit political when she was asked about the disparity. She said that one needs to give the credit to the actors as well. Well, if what Priyanka’s statement means is the difference in remuneration and actresses are paid less. So, the actors are getting the credit as well as more bucks, isn’t it?
But she finally did say that she was proud to be a leading lady in Bollywood!
