Katrina Kaif who has matured as an actress from the days of Boom till date, feels that there is huge difference and disparity in remuneration when compared with other male counterparts.
In comparison with the women-centric films which has come out in larger numbers in the country, she however laments that the remuneration has not changed much from the time she entered Bollywood.
"Since the time I entered the industry, the growth (of women-centric movies in Bollywood) has been phenomenal. The kind of roles being written is great...Kangana Ranaut has done Queen, Vidya Balan did Kahaani...now it has more layers. Our cinema has come a long way.
"But one thing which has not changed is the remuneration for women. There is still a huge disparity. Let's see what happens with that," Katrina added.

Even though these actresses talk much about the differences in remuneration, they have landed up paying a lot to Income Tax Department.
