Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor recently featured on Kareena Kapoor Khan’s radio show, ‘What Women Want,’ with his ‘AK vs AK’ co-star Anurag Kashyap. During the appearance, the ‘Malang’ actor was asked about the pay gap between Bollywood’s leading male actors and actresses.
Kareena asked Anil Kapoor if male Bollywood actors should take cues from their Hollywood counterparts and stand up for their female co-stars demanding equal pay.
Replying to Bebo, the ‘Race 3’ actor said, “You took a lot of money from me.”
Recalling how his team tried to negotiate with Kareena for ‘Veere Di Wedding’, Anil said, “‘Yaar, yeh toh hero se zyada paise maang rahi hai.’ Maine bola, ‘De do’. They all called me up also, I said, ‘Done.’ They were calling me when the negotiations were on. I said, ‘Bebo jo maangegi, de do.’”
