Sonakshi Sinha wants equal pay for women in all professions
Actor Sonakshi Sinha believes that women should get equal pay in all professions.
“Women are quite vocal about their rights nowadays. And I want the change not only in film industry... Be it sports or business or in any other profession, women should be paid an equal amount,” Sonakshi said at Inglot’s Guinness World Record event here.
“I believe that this gap will be fulfilled soon. One has to earn status and respect.It doesn’t depend on whether you are a man or woman. The only difference I see in the industry is the pay disparity. It still exists,” she added.
The Dabangg actor also said that women empowerment needs a “lot of improvement”.
“People are much more aware these days and I thank those who stand for women empowerment. Hopefully, women will get equal footing in every aspect very soon,” she said.
Sonakshi Sinha has become a Guinness World Records title-holder as she along with several other women participated in an initiative to set a record for ‘most people painting their fingernails simultaneously’.
The 28-year-old actor participated in the event on the occasion of International Women’s Day on Tuesday. She collaborated with Inglot, manufacturers in colour cosmetics, and its Indian franchise partner Major Brands.
“I am extremely thrilled to have been a part of this unique initiative on Women’s Day. Achieving a Guinness World Records title is truly commendable and I would like to thank Inglot and Major brands for giving me the opportunity to create history along with thousands of other women,” the Lootera actor said in a statement.
