With Kangna Ranaut’s woman-centric film ‘Rajjo’ set for release soon, the actress has revealed some shocking claims about her male co-stars.
In an interview with Mid-Day, Ranaut expressed how female actors don’t get their due in Bollywood – either in terms of credit or in monetary terms. In fact, the “bold” and beautiful talent says women don’t even make a third of male actors’ remuneration in tinsel town.
She added, “It’s not that if ‘Chennai Express’ did well, it was only because of Shah Rukh (Khan). It was also because of Deepika Padukone’s credibility. Forget the credit, they (male actors) take all the money as well. We don’t get paid even one-third of what male actors get. It’s not so much about the money, but it’s about (being a) woman.”
The actress is not bitter about anything, in fact she said she always does what feels right, “I am a very bold person. For seven to eight years, I was not in touch with my parents. So I took the responsibility of every decision and no one can dictate me. My parents understand that,” she said, and added how making bold choices in real life is not easy.
“Being bold on the screen is not dangerous, but when it comes to your opinion and choices (in real life), that boldness is a lot more dangerous.”
‘Rajjo’ releases at cinemas this weekend.
