Rakul Preet Singh talks about actresses getting paid lesser than actors in the film industry
Rakul Preet Singh, who will be seen as a sex worker in ‘Marjaavaan’, has been doing pretty decent not just in Bollywood but even down South. The actress who is maintaining a fair balance between the varied film industries, however, feels the pay disparity is still a challenge be it any industry.
Rakul says, “I can’t compare what I get paid there to here but yes there is a disparity. I understand the actor brings a lot of people to the theatre but if an actress like Taapsee Pannu and Bhumi Pednekar also does that then they are the heroes of the film so they should be paid. What you bring to the film should be paid equally. I am hoping this debate one day will go away.”
Rakul, who is doing pretty well on the big screen, is also eyeing at the digital space. “I am getting offers but I will do it only when I get which is completely path-breaking which I feel this is something that I will not get to do in films. I loved the big screen but digital is a new space which gives you the space to perform and expand,” says the ‘De De Pyaar De’ actress.
