Actress Anushka Sharma who is debuting as producer in tinsel town with ‘NH10’ is busy promoting her upcoming film. The actress feels that there is a disparity in the remuneration of male and female actors in Bollywood. She also thanks films like Queen and Mary Kom for bringing a “stable time” for the actresses in the film industry.
Anushka answerd when asked about her take on the difference in the remuneration of male and female actors in Bollywood, she said “There is no doubt that there is disparity, but I think we are moving towards a stable time.”
She further added, “Last year, films Queen and Mary Kom did wonderfully at the box office and were remembered for the value that they added to our industry. Both films were led by female stars and I think those kind of films are changing trends”.
The actress also feels that this is the time for films to be remembered for their stories and not for the stars in them.
She said, “I don’t think that a film should be known as ‘male-centric’ or ‘female-centric’, but it should be known for the story. That would be really nice and viable too. I think this film (NH10) could have been done equally well by anybody else and it’s not a ‘female-centric’ or ‘male-centric’ film. It’s the story that will appeal to the audience”.
The film is based on a young couple, essayed by Anushka and Neil Bhoopalam, whose road trip goes awry after an encounter with a group of violent criminals.
The film is directed by Navdeep Singh. The film has Darshan Kumaar ‘Mary Kom’ fame playing the antagonist. The film releases on March 13.
