“Most A-List Actresses Work For Free” – Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut is making headlines yet again. This time, she has reacted to a video of Priyanka Chopra where she talked about Pay Parity in Bollywood.

In response to Priyanka’s video, Kangana stated that she was first actor to fight for pay parity in the industry. That’s not all. She also stated that many female actors do films for free even now and that she is the only female actor to be paid like the male actors. Kangana took to her Instagram stories to make these claims.

For the uninitaited, earlier, Priyanka opened up about how she ‘never had pay parity in Bollywood’, even after doing around 60 films. She also revealed that she was paid about 10% of what the male actor would get paid.

Kangana said, “It’s true women before me simply submitted to these patriarchal norms… I was the first one to fight for pay parity and most disgusting thing that I faced while doing this that my contemporaries offered to work for free on the same roles that I was negotiating for… I can say with confidence most A listers (women) do films for free along with offering other favours because they fear roles will go to the right people… and then shrewdly release articles that they are highest paid ha ha…”

She concluded by saying, “In the film industry everyone knows that I only get paid like male actors and no one else… and they have no one else to blame atleast now…”

Kangana was last seen in Dhakaad that released in 2022. She will next be seen in Emergency, which is also directed by her. She will essay the role of the former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the film. She also has Tejas, Sita: The Incarnation and Didda: The Warrior Queen of Kashmir in the pipeline.
