Bollywood has miles to go in pay parity, says Kriti Sanon

Kriti Sanon

Mumbai: After completing 10 years in the industry, Bollywood actress Kriti Sanon said that the industry has not reached a good position in terms of pay parity. She said Bollywood has miles to go even though things are slowly changing.

"No, of course not. How have we reached there? Have you seen the difference in the payment structure? (laughs). We have not reached there, we are not even close but we have come a long way from where we were but it's miles to go. I think at this point, I feel like things are changing, I mean they haven't changed but I think they are changing," she told Pinkvilla.

She further said that the box office results in today's time are more linked to the film's story than the actors regardless of their gender. "People are getting excited about the film. They don't care if it's the biggest actor or not the biggest actor or if it's a male or female, they are going for a story in a film which I think might tomorrow make some changes in the payment structure."

The 32-year-old thinks that payment should be related to how many audiences an actor can get into the theatre because of them. "I think when that changes when we do more films that are also run on our shoulders and those films end up making more money... it's a circle."

"If those films make more money, there will be more money that's going to be put on those films and slowly when there's more value to that, the remuneration will slowly increase. Similarly, when films don't do well and the actor is no longer getting a certain kind of audience that was supposed to be on his or her name, their remuneration will change," she added.

She also said that the audience is coming to a balance whether they are coming to the theatre for a male actor or a female actor. "It's still not fully there but it's better than before."
