Kareena Kapoor Khan has been a force to reckon with over the years for her film choices. Apart from being one of the top paid actresses year after year, Kareena has also dished out some memorable roles on the big screen. With her movies, the actress has also dabbled in various other things and one of them is being a talk show host. With her show What Women Want, Kareena has discussed multiple topics under the sun. 

For her latest episode, Kareena had Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap as her guests and the actress brought up the issue of wage gap in the Indian film industry between male and female actors. Referring to an example from Hollywood, Kareena stated that several leading actors have refused films if their female co-stars were not paid the same wages. Asking Anil and Anurag their thoughts on the same, the senior actor immediately said, "You (Kareena) took a lot of money from me." 

Anil Kapoor's unexpected answer baffled Kareena who laughed it off. She said, "We are breaking barriers, we are doing that. But like you said, there are still some people…" He went to hilariously narrate an incident from Veere Di Wedding and said, "'Yaar, yeh toh hero se zyada paise maang rahi hai.’ Maine bola, ‘De do (‘She is demanding more money than the hero.’ I said, ‘Give it to her)." 

He added, "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 (Give Kareena what she wants)." Anil Kapoor also revealed that he has, on many occasions, starred opposite female superstars and has had no qualms about it. "There are so many films where the leading actress has taken more money and I did the films happily," he said.

Jealousy of Kareena will get you nowhere

It’s embarrassing that Kareena calls herself talented and that acting is in her genes. I find her to be very cringey in all her roles.

in house of cards season 1 doug tells a character to open her mouth and places money there between lips, anil must have done same with kareena as this human garbage of a woman has spent her entire span of life lived so far in insulting humiliating others. Like faces she made for sushant on amrita interview and awards show or calling bipasha kali bili. I watch korean content and found out in their industry if bullying goes public those actors and singers get finished like jimin of aoa or seolhyun. In bollywood kareena like garbage stays

She's always been a flop , only famous due to Kapoor surname. Her contemporaries are much better actresses who should demand the same.

Lol no, these losers are such free loaders inspite of having so much money. They get those as sponsered vacays as long as they lost pics from the trip. They sell their private life for some freebies.

Gender shouldn’t come into it. Pay should be based on ability. Kareena has less than zero acting skills.

He agreed that Kareena deserves equal pay as top male actors.

Kareena only cares about equal pay with the hero. What about all the technicians and low skilled staff. Is there such a concept of fair pay? Who will argue on their behalf? Not a single hero or heroine has raised this but she wants equal pay for playing second fiddle. There were no heroes in Veere di wedding.
