Let’s talk about pay parity
Zeenat Aman, who recently joined Instagram, took to the photo-sharing app to speak about pay disparity in Hindi cinema. To make her point, the veteran actor shared the footage of an old interview from the shoot of Qurbani, in which she can be seen speaking about how female actors play largely ornamental roles in most Hindi films. Elaborating on the video, she wrote: “In the late ’70s, Keith Adam from the Australian Broadcasting Commission popped by on the set of Qurbani, where I was rehearsing for Laila O Laila, and snagged himself an interview. It has been nearly 50 years since this footage was shot, and the industry has changed immensely since. The roles available to women are clearly not just ornamental anymore. What hasn’t changed though is the gender pay gap.” The senior actor went on to highlight that at the time, she was the highest-paid female actor in Hindi films, but the disparity in the pay-cheque between her and that of her male co-stars was “laughable”.
