Farhan Akhtar says he would pay an actress what she thinks she deserves!

Recently, Farhan and Zoya Akhtar who are currently basking in the success of 'Dil Dhadakne Do' made some strong comments on the wage disparity between male and female actors in Bollywood.


Farhan said, "I think I would pay an actress whatever she thinks she deserves so far as it works for the project. At the end of the day, there will be five actresses doing really well as far as casting goes. Also, actresses should make projects for themselves as it is completely viable for them to do so, just like Anushka Sharma has so successfully done in 'NH10'. I will be happy if an actress produces a film and comes to me saying, 'Will you direct it for me?' I will happily direct it, but you have to have that risk -taking ability and belief in yourself. And as an actor, I would not have a problem if an actress is paid more than me in a film."


Zoya further added, "I honestly believe that actresses should be paid more. They don't get as much credit as they should, given that they are now even huge box office draws. It's always considered the male actors' films which I don't think is fair and I think they need to put their foot down versus their pay scales that versus male actors is very skewed. That discrimination is not there for a director or any other technical department, as there it is based on talent or your experience."


However, wage-disparity exists even in Hollywood. In fact, noted actress Patricia Arquette had even addressed this issue in her Oscar acceptance speech!
