SHAH RUKH KHAN MADE A BOLD STATEMENT ON PAY DISCREPANCY IN BOLLYWOOD

Shah Rukh Khan is not just a fine actor and a Producer but he is also very supportive of female actors. Recently, the actor said in a statement that female actors should get equal dues as their male counterparts. An official statement shared by the actor read;

"It’s a male-dominated industry. You can’t shirk it away or ignore it. I would love it to be different. There should be no disparity. A male actor and a female actor should get the same fees. Why is it different, I don’t know.

But I would also add that no actor, male or female should over-estimate their performance. No individual,  be it director or actor should burden the film’s expense by charging an amount that goes beyond the performance of the film’s opening weekend," 

Shah Rukh Khan is one of those few actors who decided to feature the name of his female co-actors before him in the film credits. If we go by the actors then Akshay Kumar is the highest paid actor in the film industry as he charges around 40-45 crores per film. Female actors are getting way less than their male counterparts but among highest-paid actresses, one name which is topping the list is Deepika Padukone. Deepika charges 11 crores per film.
