Katrina Kaif, the most spoke about celebrity and whose never-ending gossips don’t even get boring is back in limelight again! She is one woman who feels the remuneration of actresses hasn’t changed ever since she came into the industry. This bombshell who has matured as an actress from the days of Boom till date, feels that there is huge difference and disparity in remuneration when compared with the more dominant male counterparts.
Though there have been a lot of women-centric films which have come out in large numbers in the country, she however laments that the remuneration has not changed much from the time she stepped into the world of Bollywood.
“Since the time I entered the industry, the growth (of women-centric movies in Bollywood) has been phenomenal. The kind of roles being written is great…Kangana Ranaut has done Queen, Vidya Balan did Kahaani…now it has more layers. Our cinema has come a long way. But one thing which has not changed is the remuneration for women. There is still a huge disparity. Let’s see what happens with that,” Katrina added.
Not so long back, Kangana Ranaut and Kareena Kapoor have been vocal about the financial compensation of actresses in tinsel town. Though the Bollywood actresses talk about the differences in remuneration and stuff, they have ended up paying a lot to Income Tax Department. Katrina being the highest income tax paying actress in the Hindi film industry by making payment of Rs 4.5 crore as advance tax, leaping above Kareena Kapoor (Rs 4cr) and Priyanka Chopra (Rs 2cr).
