Kriti Sanon has discussed pay parity in her recent interview and wondered why some of her male co-stars get paid 10 times more than she gets.

During the candid conversation with the host, the actress, stated:

“The difference in payment (between male actors' and female actors') currently is huge for no reason. Sometimes, for no reason. Sometimes, you feel like it's not like that person has given a hit in 10 years, then why is he getting paid 10 times,”

She also explained how producers justify the pay gap. “A lot of the times, what the producers say is, recovery. The recovery happens with digital and satellite, which sort of happens before a film is released. Before the word kind of takes off. So to get that kind of budget from digital and satellite – because on digital and satellite, the male-centric films actually do very, very well as compared to a film on a girl. I think there's the difference,” Kriti added.

Crew Real Story: Is Kareena Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Tabu's Film Based On  Kingfisher Airlines Bankruptcy?

She also claimed that producers weren't willing to put in the same budget in Crew, which has three A-list female actors, as they would in a similar entertaining comedy with three male actors. She said that aspect hasn't changed in the six years since Rhea Kapoor and Ekta Kapoor, producers of Crew, backed an all-women mainstream film in Veere Di Wedding. The 2018 chick flick starred Kareena and Sonam Kapoor among others, who had to take pay cuts to keep the budget of the film in check.

Kriti will be next seen in Netflix India thriller Do Patti alongside Kajol, which marks Kriti's debut as a producer under her banner Blue Butterfly Films.
