Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra has come a good distance in her appearing profession.
And whereas the actor basked in fame and glory, the street to the highest was full of bumps for her, as revealed by the Quantico actor in her interview on the podcast, Skimm’d from The Sofa.
The actor revealed how she was as soon as requested to exit the movie by a producer after she expressed her grievances about getting paid lower than her male counterparts.
Chopra stated the exec advised her she might “take the paycheck which was nominal compared” to what her male costars had been getting paid.
“There’s so many other girls who will take this opportunity. And, you know, women in movies are interchangeable,” stated the 38-year-old.
“I didn’t do anything about it. “I had to work within the system because that’s what we’re told, that, ‘You know, if you want this job … this is the only way.’”
“It took almost 15 years for me to get to that place where, you know, I could stand my ground. It took hearing the conversations from other women banding together to give me the confidence to stand up for myself,” she stated.
