In an interview to Mirror, the AndhaDhun actress has opened up about various concerns. When Radhika Apte was asked about the work culture in abroad, she said, “People there are always on time and they pay on time. These are two significant differences.” The actress was also quizzed about her opinion on pay parity to which she said, “If Salman Khan brings in Rs 200 crore and I bring in not even a crore, it’s obvious that he’ll be paid more since he is adding value to the box office. I don’t dispute that but I have an issue with actors who don’t contribute to ticket sales. Hey, even the mother of a lead character is paid lesser than the father. That needs to change.” Kangana Ranaut Reveals How Actresses LIE About the Pay Parity in Bollywood.
