Kangana Ranaut has been one of the most vocal actresses in the entertainment industry when it comes to shedding light on the unfair treatment of women in Bollywood. Being one of the few actresses to open up about the pay disparity in the Hindi film industry, she recently took to her official Instagram and shared a video of Priyanka Chopra Jonas talking about the same during one of her interviews. Sharing her opinion on the actress’ statement, Kangana claimed that she was the first actress to fight for equal pay while the rest used to do movies for free.
Taking to her Instagram story and sharing Priyanka’s interview, the actress revealed how women before her submitted to the patriarchal norms. She went on to claim that she is one of the first ones to fight for equal pay. She added, “And the 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.” ALSO READ: Kangana Ranaut Shares A Video Of Dirty Mount Everest Base Camp; Actress PLEADS To ‘Save The World From Humans’- WATCH Video
