Recently, at the launch event of her Maxim cover Bollywood actress turned global icon Priyanka Chopra addressed the media. She talked about her career plan and said that she is very secure about her career and looking forward to her Hollywood projects.
There are many actors who have taken sabbatical. I don’t think we need to force ourselves on Indian audience. I am not an insecure person in life. I will do a film if I like it and have time. I have a show coming every weekend. Baywatch will have a huge release in India. I intend to bring the cast here. We will have a world press junket.”
During the press conference, she also spoke about the wage disparity amongst male and female stars,
As much as there is huge pay disparity between male and female, it is in the society in general. The day a woman’s film grosses like a male star, we will get paid more. Audience should watch the movie for its content. Not for male or female. It is unfair for it to be a pressure on a female star that your film isn’t doing well. It will happen soon. Men need to stand up for feminism.”
Well said PeeCee!!
