Even Aishwarya Thinks Bollywood Is Suffering From The Wage Gap Issue

Aishwarya Rai Bachchan recently did an interview with NDTV where she openly talked about the pay gap and gender inequality that female actresses go through.

“All I want to say is let people do what they want to do and choices they want to make. Maybe I am walking a fine line here. All I hear is talk but no action, and that’s an accumulative effort by everyone involved including those talking. These discussions can go on and on, and they are important. I am not disrespecting all the talk that goes around these subjects but at the end of the day have the guts to make those choices. Many talk about it but then when time comes, they take a safe, comfortable route and then make the choice that’s a paradox and one defeats the other so let’s put words into action.”

Her words clearly indicate towards the ignorant behavior of our film industry. In the past, actors like Priyanka Chopra, Emma Watson, Deepika Padukone, etc., have come forward to speak about the issue.

We wonder how long it is going to take for them to really take action and make Bollywood a place promoting equality among all genders.
