Many actors have openly spoken about the pay parity in Bollywood. This barrier of disparity is yet to be broken, but a leading actress like Kareena Kapoor Khan still gets paid in the top-bracket. These high-paid actors have hiked up their charges to equal the fees of their male co-stars.
Well, this actress enjoying immense popularity will be starring in an Amir Khan film- Laal Singh Chadda. This movie relates to Forest Grump of 1944. As per reports, Kareena has raised her charges after gaining significant success in her 2018 movie- Veere Di Wedding. The film’s mighty success and an 80 crore box-office collection is a probable reason behind the raised charges, capitalizing on her star power. Seemingly, she had asked for Rs 7 crores for Veere Di Wedding. Moreover, she will be quoting over 10 crores for her upcoming movies. The above charges can vary with the required working days of the project and her role in the film.
There is no information on her remuneration made from the 2019 release- Good Newwz. However, “Bebo” has always been open about the pay disparity in Bollywood. She believes that in recent times, the industry’s economics is taking a turn since a greater number of female actors have become producers.
Kareena has put her views saying that it is slightly different for the female actors turned producers like Anushka Sharma and Deepika Padukone. Moreover, the bigwigs do not have a choice other than bringing female actors into the limelight as they are bringing in maximum revenue.
The environment in the industry seems to change finally. However, this primary change needs a more robust social dynamic than limiting it to the film fraternity. The initiated change needs to be taken up from a level where we change how a man looks towards a woman on the street. However, the stunning actress is glad to be acknowledged.
