The debate on equal rights and payment has been the topic of discussion in Bollywood for a long time. Usually, in Bollywood, movies are often attributed to male stars but not females. Talking about the same, during the promotion of her upcoming film, Arjun Patiala, Kriti Sanon talks about this system in the media and how she was upset when the success of her last film Luka Chuppi was attributed only to the film's lead hero, Katrik Aaryan and says that "it is upsetting."
While talking to Hindustan Times, Kriti said, "The conversation started after a headline stating ‘Mr. Bachchan’s Badla and Kartik Aryan’s Luka Chuppi do well at the box office’, surfaced. Taapsee pointed it out and tweeted that female actors have also worked in these films. Though it happens at times, I think most people are scared nowadays about not mentioning the work of female actors; they fear that we might tweet about it. Once the conversation started, Arjun (Kapoor) and I also tweeted because a similar incident happened when they started talking about the clash of Panipat (which features Kriti and Arjun) and Pati Patni Aur Woh (Kartik Aaryan, Bhumi Pednekar, Ananya Panday). There are times when actresses are not given as much importance as the actors, even when it comes to mentioning them in the headline. You don’t call a romantic film a girl’s movie. Some people have a tendency to write in detail about the male lead’s performance and just two lines describing the leading lady’s work. That, too, they focus more on how pretty she looked. Now, that’s upsetting."
Meanwhile, proving her mettle over and over again and impressing the audience, Kriti has a good line up of films that her fans are bound to enjoy. As per reports, Kriti is all set to play the role of an RJ in Rahul Dholakia’s next. This movie will land the actress in the female-oriented movie zone as she plays the protagonist as well. This film will be a thriller and is expected to hit the shooting floors in August 2019.
The actress will also be seen in Housefull 4 and Panipat. Both films are scheduled to hit the big screens in 2020.
