The Shakuntalm actress, Samantha Prabhu, is bang on giving hits after hits and also gave her take on pay parity being an issue for her.
Speaking about her box-office sucess she spoke,” Yes, you could say that I’m fighting hard not directly I mean it’s not like I’m fighting to be paid equally.”
She clarifies saying,” I want it to be like by-product of the hard work, the success. People should just come and say,’We want to pay you this much’. I shouldn’t have to beg for it.”
She says,” I believe that it comes with an incredible amount of hard work.”
She went on to say,” I want to put up this quote that’s in my bio thay says ‘ whatever that your capabilities are, stretch them to your limits’ and then a little more.”
She spoke,” When you’re a woman in this industry, it’s not just enough to stretch your capabilities to your limits but that you need that a little more.”
“The stress is on a little more because it’s just that much hard.”
She added,” Ofcourse, everyday is a challenge.”
