Priyanka Chopra Received Equal Pay To Her Male Co-Stars For Amazon Prime Video's 'Citadel'

Los Angeles, December 8 - India's international star, Priyanka Chopra revealed in an interview with BBC's 100 Women that she has received equal pay to her male co-stars for Amazon Prime Video's upcoming series Citadel.

This is the first time that Priyanka is getting equal pay in her 20 years of an acting career. She revealed that in Bollywood, she used to get only 10% of what her male co-stars got to star in a movie.

"I've never had pay parity in Bollywood. I would get paid about 10% of the salary of my male co-actor", the actress said. "It [the pay gap] is large, substantially large. And so many women still deal with that. I'm sure I will too if I worked with a male co-actor now in Bollywood".

Priyanka, who has worked in over 60 Bollywood movies, also revealed that she had also faced sexism and body shaming while working on Bollywood productions. "I thought it was absolutely ok to sit for hours and hours on set, while my male co-actor just took his own time, and decided whenever he wanted to show up on set is when we would shoot".

"I was called 'black cat' and 'dusky'. I mean, what does 'dusky' even mean in a country where we are literally all brown?" Chopra Jonas continued. "I thought I was not pretty enough, I believed that I would have to work a lot harder, even though I thought I was probably a little bit more talented than my fellow actors who were lighter skinned", she added.

Talking about "Citadel", it is a spy actioner from "Avengers: Infinity War" directors Joe and Anthony Russo. The show features an ensemble cast that is headlined by Chopra Jonas and Richard Madden.
