Amid Kareena Kapoor’s trolling by Sita and Deepika Padukone’s alleged expulsion from Baiju Bawra, Bell Bottom actress Lara Dutta’s revelation about salary disparity comes as a surprise. [Exclusive]

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Bollywood leads the pack when it comes to pay disparity and gender inequality. It is a known fact that Bollywood is a male dominated industry and male actors often charge more than their female counterparts. Although the gender pay gap appears to be narrowing in recent years, the pay gap is still deeply ingrained in the industry. And the recent discussions of Kareena Kapoor Khan and Deepika Padukone allegedly asking for equal or more pay just adds to that. In the midst of this, Bell Bottom actress Lara Dutta has said that the pay gap is a constant change and will continue to gain momentum in the industry.

So I definitely think that ‘Yes, the industry has changed in many ways’ especially for women And if you look at it today, not only the actresses, but there have been many directors, writers, PDOs who have taken a step in the last few years. And many opportunities have been created for I think this is the new trend that has started and I hope it continues to improve, “Lara told Bollywood Life.

Furthermore, he added: The emergence of OTT platforms has also played an important role in this change and I just feel that it will get better and better in the future. Today, we already have many important actresses who have been demanding remuneration that is already equal to that paid to male actors. And there will also be some fixes. In these times of Covid-19, a lot of fixes have already been made in terms of movies that have gone straight to digital releases. And there has been a correction on what male actors can charge. So nothing is going to happen overnight. And like I said, this will be a constant change that will only continue to gain momentum. “

Speaking of her 18-year journey as an outsider, Lara told us that she has not been part of any camp or group and that she still had the opportunity to work with several great artists in the industry. “I think that being an outsider, I have had a great career in the industry. In my entire career, I have never belonged to any kind of camp or anything like that. I have always been an artist who has had the opportunity to work in all areas with everyone. So I really don’t feel like I’ve missed anything. Being an outsider, I’ve had incredible opportunities given to me. And when it comes to not being cast in a movie, I don’t think I’m the only group of actors who had have to deal with something like that. That’s an integral part of being in the industry. So there’s nothing that feels like ‘Oh my gosh! Just sath bohot bura hua’. I think I’ve been very lucky in my life to be in the industry for 18 years and remain relevant. “
