Sonam Kapoor finds 'sexism' in film industry 'disgusting'


Sonam Kapoor may be one of the A-lister actresses in Bollywood, but she is not happy with the pay cheque female actors get when compared to their male counterparts in the industry.

In a recent interview, the 31-year-old actor opened up about the biases in the industry saying, “There is a lot of sexism in the society which is disgusting”.

The diva cited the example of fellow actors, John Abraham and Varun Dhawan and the kind of money they were paid for the film Dishoom, which she says is “way more than what Kareena and I were getting to make Veere Di Wedding".

“We are making Veere and we are getting an OK budget, but we are not getting what we want. I have to cut my fee, Bebo has to cut her fee to get this film there. The film is not elaborate as we imagined. It is sad and heartbreaking. We need to work extra hard to make it look a certain way," she said.

Even after her hit movies like Neerja, Raanjhana, Sonam think she still does not get the kind of respect and reward she deserves. She claimed that she still finds it difficult to get the projects off the floor.
