Taapsee Pannu, who has been very open about her experiences in Bollywood, has yet again made a shocking revelation on how 'It’s tedious to find actors to be a part of a film where the actress might have 10-20 per cent more screen time' 

When asked about pointing out how the budget of a woman-led film is sometimes equal to a male A-lister’s salary, Taapsee said, "How many times do you see a male A-lister feature in a female A-lister’s film unless he is co-producing it, but the opposite happens all the time and no one bats an eyelid. It’s tedious to find actors to be a part of a film where the actress might have 10-20 per cent more screen time. There have been times when actors, who have done lesser films than me, refused to co-star claiming there was nothing ‘heroic’ about their part."

She added, "Not just me, Deepika Padukone, who has worked with such big names, had to work with a fabulous actor like Vikrant Massey in ‘Chhapaak’, Kangana Ranaut paired up with Jassie Gill for ‘Panga’, Alia Bhatt with Vicky Kaushal in ‘Raazi’, Vidya Balan with Manav Kaul for ‘Tumhari Sulu’. You see the pattern? Actresses never do that." 

On the work front, Taapsee is currently shooting for Rashmi Rocket
