In an interview with BBC 100 Women, Ms Chopra said she is finally earning as much as her male co-stars after spending 22 years in the film industry for her part in the upcoming spy drama ‘Citadel’. Talking to the outlet, the actor said, “I’ve never had pay parity in Bollywood. I would get paid about 10 per cent of the salary of my male co-actor.”

She added that the gap is not meagre. “It (the pay gap) is large, substantially large. And so many women still deal with that. I’m sure I will too if I worked with a male co-actor now in Bollywood, she further told the outlet. Ms Chopra also informed that many female actors of her generation have asked for pay parity but to no avail.

Talking about her early days, Ms Chopra revealed she was required to wait on set for hours while her male co-actors got dressed. “I thought it was absolutely OK to sit for hours and hours on set, while my male co-actor just took his own time, and decided whenever he wanted to show up on set is when we would shoot,” she told the BBC.
