The issue of gender pay gap has been the talk of the town for a while now. The latest celebrity to voice her opinion on the same is Global star Priyanka Chopra. The ‘Baywatch’ actress said the gender pay gap is a “global problem” and exists in every profession.
“I think gender pay gap is a global problem. It exits in every profession, be it Hollywood, Bollywood or the business sector where male are paid more than females. I feel it’s a big problem and is not just confined to the film industry. My appearance on the top 10 list Forbes 100 celebrity list highlights the same problem,” she said.
In the past, actresses including, Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Anushka Sharma have openly slammed the Hindi film industry for being biased towards the male actors.When asked about her views on being the only female who made it to the top 10 in the 2017 Forbes India Celebrity 100 list, the ‘Baywatch’ actress said, she feels extremely happy about the fact that she is at the position where at some point she is on the same level as her male counterparts as it usually does not happen in the film industry.
