WEBDESK: Gorgeous Bollywood Actress Sonam Kapoor thinks women should stop working for those employers who pay them less than they deserve, instead of complaining about inequitable remuneration.
“They complain about equal pay and I understand that. If you think you deserve something, fight for it and the best way to fight for it is by not doing it. So don’t work for those people who you think are not paying you enough. Don’t complain about it,” Sonam said during a session in ‘Movie Mela’ event at the 17th Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.
During some other session at the same event, Deepika Padukone also said she was not “unhappy” with her pay, but believed there should be “some semblance when it comes to the current generation of stars.”
Sonam openly declared that she is a “complete feminist” and there is nothing to feel timid about it.
“I am a complete feminist…Being a feminist is to understand that it’s not about boys and girls, it’s about being who you are, not being afraid, and standing up for what you believe is right,” she said.
The gorgeous daughter of daughter of Anil Kapoor, also considers her father a “feminist” too, because he treats her as a “strong capable individual.”
“My father is the best person I know because he encourages me and my sister. He treats me as a strong capable individual and for that he is a feminist. He believes that these girls are more than capable of doing a lot of things which a lot of people are not,” the Bollywood star said.
Earlier, actresses like Parineeti Chopra and Katrina Kaif were criticized for their remarks that they are “not feminists” but believe in equality.
Sonam, will be next seen on screen opposite co-star Salman Khan in “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo”.
