“I think the kind of films and roles I do take a whole year… I think it is justified," she said. "At some point, we have to come to that place where we are equally paid. It is a small step… we are headed [in] that direction.”
Kangana has long been outspoken about the need to close the gender pay gap between male and female actors in Bollywood. “It will take time [to reduce the gap]," she admits, elaborating that male actors get into production, share profit or are engaged in some lucrative capacity in the film production. "These things suit them as they have made a place for themselves, they have command over the box office,” she adds. But she herself is not keen on profit sharing just yet: "“Not now, may be after sometime.”
Kangana's next film Kati Batti will be out on September 18.
