Aamir…Patriarchal mindset should change.

Actor Aamir Khan has commented on the pay disparity in Bollywood and feels it is high time to end such discriminations.

Many Bollywood stars have spoken out on the huge difference between the remuneration of male and female actors in the country.

Lending his support, the 51-year-old PK star said, “Pay scale should not depend on a person’s sex. It should be equal. Patriarchal mindset should change.”

Aamir was speaking as part of a discussion panel in Mumbai.

The actor was asked if he would like to expand his horizons and do Hollywood films like actors Irrfan Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone have done in the recent past, he said that he was not keen on pursuing a career in the West and also revealed he was offered Hollywood movies in the past but he did not like the scripts.

“Working in the west doesn’t interest me particularly. What interests me is a good film. It should be a film that touches my heart and I feel I can perform in. Where the film is made is irrelevant. There have been number of offers to me from Hollywood but I did not like the scripts,” he said.

The 3 Idiots star also said that working in international projects will not give him the same joy, which he gets when his work is well received by the Indian audience. – CINEWS
