Actor Sayani Gupta once said that the casting director had told her that there was a stipulation in the industry that men should be paid more than women. Sayani was speaking at the HT NxT session on Thursday.
When asked about the pay gap in the film industry, Sayani said, “I was told that male rivals would get more on the same shows I participate in. I don’t know, in fact, none of us went and discussed how much we were getting paid. Kirti Kulhari and I were on the same project, but how personally we were doing it.” We do not know. I do not think it’s very professional to discuss. It’s a bit like a no – go zone, we really do not know. “
She said, “The balance sheet we can suggest is not coming out, and checked and said, ‘Oh, this is getting too much. I was paid so much.’ Later, we do not know. We do not have that kind of information. “
In the HT NxT session, Sayani is accompanied by actors Kirti Kulhari, Rasika Dugal and Jaideep Ahlawat, who discuss how the entertainment industry has evolved in the digital age.
