Sonakshi Sinha believes that women should get equal pay in all professions. “Women are quite vocal about their rights nowadays. And I want the change not only in film industry... Be it sports or business or in any other profession, women should be paid an equal amount,” Sonakshi said at Inglot’s Guinness World Record event.

“I believe that this gap will be fulfilled soon. One has to earn status and respect.It doesn’t depend on whether you are a man or woman. The only difference I see in the industry is the pay disparity. It still exists,” she added.
