Dhaakad star Kangana Ranaut takes on pay parity in Bollywood; reveals she isn’t ‘underpaid’ due to ‘help’ from men

Kangana Ranaut, who recently launched the trailer of her film Dhaakad in a huge way, has now opened up about the long-standing pay parity debate in Bollywood. When asked about her take on it by Free Press Journal, Kangana Ranaut said that she’s certainly not underpaid and surprisingly credited all the men for helping her through her journey till date. However, she did to admit to thinking earlier that she was underpaid as compared to the heroes she’d work with, but now, she can safely say that she’s no longer receiving the short end of the stick when it come to the perceived gender-based pay gap in Bollywood.

The Dhaakad trailer was launched today in the presence of the film’s lead cast – Kangana Ranaut, Arjun Rampal and Divya Dutta – along with the producers and Director, Razneesh Razy Ghai. Descending from a helicopter, Kangana and the rest of team Dhaakad made their way before a huge media contingent gathered at the prestigious PVR Phoenix Mall in Lower Parel, Mumbai to add the excitement and impetus to the Dhaakad trailer launch and needless to say, it more than lived up to expectations, with an action movie coming along in Bollywood after a long time that looks slick, sleek, stylish and well mounted.

Addressing why it took her so long to finally deliver a film like Dhaakad and how does it feel now that it’s finally happened, Kangana Ranaut said, “I’ve had a lot of low points, when at my best time I refused a lot of Khan-led films, Kumar-led films, Kapoor-led films. People used to call me up and ask, ‘What you’re doing, why are you’re refusing all these great films?’” Looks like Dhaakad has proven to moment of catharsis from the star’s perspective, what say?

Elaborating on said moment of catharsis, she added, “I used to refuse to go to award functions, I would refuse so many top magazine photoshoots, and people would wonder, What’s wrong with her? They would keep telling me, ‘You don’t know what you’re doing, you’re making a big mistake, you’re at such a high, you should not be giving up on all this.’ But I always thought to myself, how is this benefiting me, how is this helping me grow as both an artist an individual? So, I rather waited for what’s right and then this (Dhaakad) came along.”

Dhaakad releases in theatres on 20th May.
