Taapsee Pannu recently at a promotional event of Saand Ki Aankh said that actresses still get five to 10 per cent pay as compared to the total payment of male actors, primarily because the audience watches more male-driven films.
Taapsee Pannu said, "I would like to urge people out there to give an equal chance to films led by females because only then will change happen. Until now, we (actresses) get five to 10 per cent payment as compared to our heroes and that is because you all probably walk into a male-led film more than you walk into female-led films. If you go to theatres (to also watch female-centric films) then we can actually achieve equality in our industry. So, please help us to achieve that."
Taapsee Pannu further added that women should support other women to achieve their dreams. "I feel girls need to help other girls to achieve their dreams because we can really make a difference if we join hands. There is no bigger power if a female joins another female. I think we should make everything equal not just at home but also in terms of educational and work opportunities or, for that matter, in terms of equal pay as well."
