Radhika Apte, will be seen in Padman along with Akshay Kumar. The actress has given power-packed performances in the films like Shor in the City, Kabali, Phobia, Badlapur, Manjhi – The Mountain Man. Recently, Radhika talked about the pay disparity, that prevails in the film industry, between male and female actors.
According to the reports published by a leading daily, Radhika revealed that that many of her male co-stars earn more than her for the same job. She said “There is a lot of inequality. I’m friends with all my contemporaries. I know who gets paid what. My male friends get three times more pay than me. We have so many male superstars, but there are just a few female actors who have attained that status. It is not only because of the industry, it’s in the society. If films starring Deepika or Priyanka will start working like a Salman Khan movie, we will start having female superstars. People still can’t digest the fact or imagine that a female actor can be a superstar.”
Radhika, who was last seen with Rajinikanth in Kabali, also said this will only change when the audiences start accepting A-list female actors as superstars.
The actress has not made any outing on the silver screen in recent times. She further added, “I like to be in a comfortable zone. What I am wearing makes me feel like a princess. I never wear such things in personal life. It is a good change for me.”
“For an actor, it is necessary to vegetate and look for inspiration. I get that from traveling, meeting people and observing things around me. I bring back my energy by gaining different experiences. Taking a break and evolving as a person is important for me,” she added.
