Priyanka Chopra said, "I don't like the fact that I get paid less than the boys even though I've worked as hard as them"
"I can walk away. But I choose not to, this is an issue not just about women's pay; we need to work on how women are viewed in society and then the pay will be reflected in that" she said
"I think it's not just in films, it's everywhere, every part of the society. I think, IT they have matched it up. As far as the film industry goes, you are paid as per your market demand," said Karthi
Freida Pinto says that the non-profit production company called 'We Do It Together' is the answer to the 'pay gap' buzz, adding that the campaign is a 'doer not a talker'
"Bollywood is as patriarchal as our society. I once met a producer who asked me about my age and I said, 30. To this, he replied, 'Don't worry, you still have five years left.' Another producer showed me the exact spot on my face where I needed to get a botox"
"Women are quite vocal about their rights nowadays. And I want the change not only in film industry. Be it sports or business or in any other profession, women should be paid an equal amount. I believe that this gap will be fulfilled soon," Sonakshi Sinha said
When asked if it is high time, the pay gap should be reduced, Juhi Chawla said, "Even if I feel that way, I don't see it going away easily. It won't go overnight. The only difference is that today's actors earn more than what we used to get and similarly the future actors will get even more"
"I started working when I was 14. I don't think things are so bad. We have all had extraordinary opportunities. But I just think it's about the desire to make more opportunities and the desire to allow female directors a far better road and the ability to make more opportunities," the Oscar-winning actress told NDTV's Sreenivasan Jain
"After Basic Instinct, no one wanted to pay me. I remember sitting in my kitchen with my manager and just crying and saying 'I'm not going to work until I get paid'. I still got paid so much less than any man," said Shraon Stone. She added that change "has to start with regular pay, not just for movie stars"
"I am not unhappy with what I am being paid. For me its important that I do good work. Salman, Shah Rukh and Aamir have been around for so long. They are in a different league. But I think there should be some semblance when it comes to the current generation of stars," said Deepika.
