Actress Sonakshi Sinha thinks the disparity in remuneration of actors and actresses still exists despite the success of women-oriented films The Dirty Picture, Queen, Piku, Tanu Weds Manu returns and Neerja in recent times.
“Status of respect one has to earn, it doesn’t depend on whether you are a man or woman. The only difference I see in the industry is the pay disparity. It still exists.” She said at the event of Inglots's Guinness World Records attempt.
“Like I said before women are quite vocal about their rights nowadays. I believe that gap will be fulfilled soon. And I want the change not only in film industry, be it sport or business or in any profession, women should be paid an equal amount in every profession.” Sinha added.
Speaking on the women empowerment, Sinha believes that it still needs more improvement. The ‘Dabangg’ actress told to media, “When we talk about women empowerment, I think it needs a lot of improvement. I feel as people are much more aware these days and I thank those who stand for women empowerment. Hopefully, women will get the equal stand in every aspect very soon.”
At the Women’s Day, Sonakshi joined thousands of women in their attempt to achieve a Guinness World Record title of ‘Most people painting their fingernails simultaneously’ which is organized by a Poland-based cosmetic brand Inglot.
Work wise, Sinha has completed shooting for a remake of the 2011 Tamil film Mouna Guru, entitled Akira, an action-drama from director AR Murugadoss in which she plays an aggressive college student.
Apart from Akira, the ‘Lootera’ actress will be seen in action thriller film ‘force 2’ along with John Abraham and directed by Abhinay Deo.
