Although several celebrities like Madhur Bhandar, Dhanush, Lata Mangeshkar and Alia Bhatt took to Twitter to wish their fans on International Women's Day,Amitabh Bachchan took the cake with his tweet,"Woman's Day' .. ?? A single day dedicated to women ? But a woman dedicates every day of her life !!!"
According to ibnlive.com, famous B-town celebrities like Aditi Rao Hydari and Jaya Prada have also spoken up on Women's Day about the gap that exists in remuneration for men and women in cinema. Aditi Rao has said “ I don't really understand why we are paid less than the male actors because we put equal efforts and recent past has shown that actresses can deliver a hit film. We deserve better pay, equal to what actors get. Jaya Prada also spoke on the issue adding, “Bollywood looks only at the Box Office numbers. If the film earns money, it is usually because of the hero and the director. It is about Salman and Shah Rukh Khan. But things have changed a lot for heroines now, though not completely. An actress can demand a better remuneration. Unlike the bygone era, characters don't matter now. I'm lucky to say that good characters and good films. But yes, compared to actors we didn't get much.”. Hope B-town celebrities continue to speak up for women's empowerment even when the day is over.
