Kangana Ranaut seems to be on a slamming spree! The actress has been making headlines with her back to back controversial interviews where she has spoken candidly about anything and everything. Be it her past relationships with Hrithik Roshan and Aditya Pancholi, or the Women’s Commission or Karan Johar, Kangana has been spilling quite a lot of beans off late.

While Kangana’s fans have supported her and touted her as a true feminist,the naysayers say that it just another PR activity for her forthcoming film, Simran.

But recently the media asked Kangana about her views regarding the huge pay gap between male and female actors in Bollywood, and here’s what she has to say…

“Why are we so wary of discussions and debate? I am told it’s bad PR, but I don’t quite understand that term,” Kangana replied wittily.

On further request Kangana got candid and put forward her views, saying, “There are women in the industry who say that if actresses are unable to bring in crowds [in a theatre] that a male star can, how can they demand equal pay. If we, as actresses, keep instilling this inferiority complex in girls, there is no hope for better times.”

“Personally, my logic for remuneration has always been that I have 365 days to work, as much as any male star. An actor’s pay must be determined by the amount of work s/he does. Your gender is no yardstick for it,” Kangana added.
 

On a concluding note, Kangana asserted, “The industry isn’t just made up of four actors who have lasted through the decades. I might not have 30 years behind me. But in my 10 years, I’ve achieved significant milestones to demand a certain fee. Anybody’s film can fail and this year has shown us enough proof of that. So, let’s stop giving the opening (weekend) and closing logic.”
