EXCLUSIVE: Taapsee Pannu reveals the budget of Shabaash Mithu. he compares it to the salary of an A-lister
In her interview with Bollywood HungamaTaapsee Pannu has been candid about her release budget Shabaash Mithu as he compared it to the salary of an A-lister. Talking about how there is one Sridevi who is a superstar but there are many male actors who are superstars, the actress also mentioned that female actors don’t get opportunities. In the same breath, he stated, “Shabaash Mithu it’s my biggest budget as a lead, but the budget of my entire film is equivalent to the budget of an A-lister (male actor).”
Elaborating on it, Taapsee added, “And by A-listers I mean I’m talking about A-listers who are not at the top of the ladder. I’m talking about those who are a little further down the ladder. Their salary is the budget of my entire film. The situation is still like this. So we still have a long way to go.”
He also mentioned that as actors we have started this issue and we have moved in the right direction where we are trying to reduce these differences. “I’m sure if it was 10-12 years ago, I wouldn’t be sitting here promoting a film like this. So, things have changed, but nowhere could be called equal,” he argued.
Talking about Shabaash Mithu, the film is inspired by the life of female cricketer Mithali Raj and her journey to dream of becoming a cricketer in a male-dominated sport. Directed by Srijit Mukherjee, the film releases on July 15.
