No, we are not kidding.
"Bollywood pays according to their box office. They don't pay according to your experience or talent, they pay on box office success. I remember after 'Kahaani', Vidya signed a film with Emraan called 'Ghanchkkar' and she made a big deal that she had to be paid at par with her male co star. I think Bolywood respcts box office and that's the reality," Richa told IANS.
The 30-year-old star also stated that she gets paid is equal to what her male co-stars make.
She further said, “As far as I am concerned, I have not faced any such problems. It doesn't happen in my league, but I do understand that Deepika (Padukone) or Anushka (Sharma) might feel that they are not paid at par with their actors because they are superstars. I don't think it happens at my level. What I get paid, is equal to my male co-stars and I am quite happy with it. ”
On the cinema front, Richa received superb critical acclamation for her performances in films like 'Masaan' and 'Sarbjit'. She is said to be among the top-notch actresses of the current era.
