The three Khans of Bollywood may be big players when it comes to
box office collections. But, King Khan believes that none of the
actors can compete with a Salman Khan movie when it comes to
shattering box office records.
In an interview with Femina, the superstar spoke about competing
with a Salman Khan film and pay disparity between male and female
actors. Here's what he said-
'I Can't Compete With Salman Khan At The Box
Shahrukh Khan was quoted saying, "I can't compete with Salman
Khan at the box office; none of us can. That is the reality." Interestingly, SRK's upcoming film Raees was earlier slated to
release with Salman Khan's Sultan last year.
'Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif And Priyanka
Chopra Take Home Really Good Pay Packets, More Than Some
In the same interview, he had spoke about pay disparity in
Bollywood. SRK added, "Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and
Priyanka Chopra take home really good pay packets, more than some
heroes. And they deserve it. I don't know if they take more than me
or Salman but they're celebrated for their worth. In other fields
like, say, with a male or a female pilot, both are paid equally for
what they bring to the table. But market forces dictate our payment
in the film industry because they define the result at the
turnstiles. When we ask for equal pay, a lot of pressure is put on
women actors to sell the movie on their own steam."
Going back to SRK-Salman's friendship, the two superstars seem
to be bonding big time these days. From cycling together to
promoting each other's films on Twitter, the duo never fail to
break the internet with their warm camaraderie! In fact, SRK will
be promoting his upcoming movie Raees on Bigg Boss too.
Bollywood's 'Karan-Arjun' have finally returned back!
