Kareena Kapoor Khan was in the news of late when headlines screamed that she was allegedly demanding Rs 12 crore to play the role of Sita in an adaptation. This led to the actress being trolled heavily on social media. The report also suggested that makers were looking for replacement as they could not afford the fee. The movie’s script is being written by K V Vijayendra Prasad who is behind the epic Bahubali films. Pay disparity is one issue that is being spoken about a lot. Actresses like Taapsee Pannu and Sonam Kapoor have discussed it at length in their interviews. Also Read – BEWARE! Searching Delhi Crime, Mardaani 2, Narcos on the internet can prove to be risky
Now, Kareena Kapoor Khan has found support from none other than Priyamani. She told Bollywood Bubble, “Regarding the pay parity I would definitely say that if a woman is asking for what she deserves I think it is because she deserves it. That is her market thing and she deserves it what she is asking for. So I don’t think you should question that… About the pay parity, I don’t think there is anything wrong… What I’m saying is if a female especially is asking for how much ever amount she is asking for, I think she very well deserves it.” Also Read – Rana Daggubati launch his web series Social in Hyderabad – view pics
Priyamani reiterated that she does not feel there is anything wrong in a successful actress demanding a certain fee. We often read articles that discuss the hikes of actors. Priyamani further said, “So I don’t think there’s anything wrong. These ladies have reached a point where they can say what they want to… You can’t make a comment on that person just because you think that it’s wrong that doesn’t mean that the person doesn’t deserve it.” Also Read – Exclusive!
