Pay parity has been the topic of discussion in Bollywood from the past few years. A lot of female stars have spoken about it and have stated that they would also like to be paid as equal to the male stars of Bollywood.

According to a report in a tabloid, Kajol also spoke about pay parity and stated that she doesn’t pay attention to it. The actress said, “I don’t pay much attention to pay parity. I believe that it (wage gap) has to do with the economics of the industry.”

However, the actress added that things are changing. She said, “Audience has been changing in the past few years. Slowly but surely, things are getting better. Filmmakers are making films on all kinds of subjects and they are working. The audience needs to let a women-oriented film earn Rs 200-300 crore.”

Kajol was last seen on the big screen in Helicopter Eela which failed to make a mark at the box office. She will next be seen on the big screen in Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior which is slated to release on 10th January 2020. Kajol plays the role of Savitribai Malusare in the film. We will get to see Kajol and Ajay Devgn on the big screen after a gap of a decade. They were last seen together in 2010 release Toonpur Ka Super Hero.

After Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior, the actress will be seen in Tribhanga which will be streamed on Netflix. It will mark Kajol’s debut in the digital world. The movie is directed by Renuka Shahane and also stars Vaibhav Tatwawaadi.
