News Desk |

Shah Rukh Khan, the famous Bollywood actor, talked about wage differences between male and female actors in Bollywood. In a latest interview, the King of Bollywood said, “It’s a male-dominated industry. You can’t shirk it away or ignore it”. He further added, “I would love it to be different.

There should be no disparity. A male actor and a female actor should get the same fees. Why is it different, I don’t know.” “My name is Khan” actor further added, “But I would also add that no actor male or female should over-estimate their performance.

No individual, be it director or actor, should burden the film’s expense by charging an amount that goes beyond the performance of the film’s opening weekend.”

Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan) has done some, Anupam Kher too and it’s wonderful,But I have never been offered an opportunity. I don’t even know if I am good enough to do it, I think my English is a little weak,” Shahrukh joked.
