Mumbai: It seems like Kangana Ranaut loves attracting controversies towards herself. The actress has recently slammed successful Bollywood divas like Alia Bhatt, Taapsee Pannu and Sonakshi Sinha for saying that they don't deserve equal pay as their male counterparts because the latter have a wider reach and get big openings.
Kangana, who has never been shy away from putting forth opinions, and always expresses herself on different platforms, she did that again during the trailer launch of her upcoming film 'Panga'. Since 'Panga' is a woman centric film. the actress was asked about her views on women empowerment to which she answered citing the gender pay gap in the Hindi film industry.
Kangana feels that this pay gap is responsible for limiting women's economic empowerment. While commenting on the topic the actress also took indirect jibe over three very successful Bollywood actresses Taapsee Pannu, Alia Bhatt and Sonakshi Sinha over there remarks on pay disparity. The actresses had earlier justified earning less than their male co-stars, commenting on which Kangana said "I have heard some successful actresses saying that they don't deserve equal pay as their male colleagues because the latter get big openings, but I believe if you will not feel empowered yourself, then no film or a person can make you feel empowered. You have to feel like and equal. You should tell yourself that you don't have any shortcomings."
Speaking more on women empowerment the actress also said, " all women should look into the mirror and ask themselves why do we not feel empowered. I think half the battle is lost when you feel undeserving. I feel you are as empowered as you think you are."
