Kriti Sanon Has An Unusual Solution To How A Film Should Give Credits To Its Stars
Kriti Sanon, riding high on the success of 'Luka Chuppi', has a unique suggestion on how stars should be named on screen in the opening credits
Actress Kriti Sanon feels that it is the best practice to name the cast of a film alphabetically than according to stardom. Kriti also hailed the way Shah Rukh Khan chose to name his leading ladies earlier than him in the film Zero. "It's great that Shah Rukh Sir has taken the step... but I feel that it is best to name the cast alphabetically," Kriti said in an interview to Bangalore Mirror.
Kriti strongly advocated that remuneration for roles in Bollywood films have to be gender neutral and in scripts where females play a bigger and more important role, they should be paid more. "Remuneration should be in sync with two things. Your role in the film and your capacity to bring in the audience. There have been instances in the past when actresses have been paid more than their hero..." she added to Bangalore Mirror.
Kriti also mentioned that it is about time that the leading also gets importance if she is carrying the film on her shoulders. "The business of overlooking the leading lady has been going on for a while and it is so unfair. I am glad this conversation is finally happening. It's logical to only talk about the male protagonist when the leading lady doesn't have much to do. But when they are both carrying the film on their shoulders, the credit should be equally shared. Everybody deserves a mention," Kriti said.
Kriti is already receiving a lot of bouquets on social media for standing up for actresses and demanding that they should be seen equally not through the lens of the gender but through the length and importance of their roles. On the work front, Kriti is riding high on the success of Luka Chuppi, her rom-com with Kartik Aaryan that released in February. The film, set in a small town, deals with live-in marriages in a hilarious way and was a hit at the box-office.
