I get paid very well, have no complaints: Kareena Kapoor

While actors like Vidya Balan, Priyanka Chopra feel there is disparity in Bollywood's remuneration system, Kareena thinks differently. While in 2012, she said she would fight for "equal pay cheques" for both male and female actors, she seems to have had a change of heart.

Actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, who has worked with some of the biggest banners, says that she has no complaints about the remuneration structure in the film industry as she is "paid really well".

While actresses like Vidya Balan and Priyanka Chopra feel there is disparity in the remuneration system compared to actors in Bollywood, Kareena shares a different opinion.

"I get paid very well and I have no complaints. If it's a big budget film, they can afford and what works for another actor might not work for somebody else," the actress told reporters in a group interview.

"I feel each and every actor is different. For example, I can never do 'The Dirty Picture'. I don't have that courage and boldness but for me it's a challenge to be a part of Golmaal 3 and still have a great role. It's an honour for me to be a part of Singham and that works for me. It's unfair to draw any comparisons," she added.

However, the 33-year-old was of different opinion in the year 2012 when at an event in the capital she shared how Vidya's National Award-winning performance in the 2011 released film The Dirty Picture has given actresses the hope for a brighter tomorrow in the Indian film industry.

It was during that time Kareena said that she will fight for "equal pay cheques" for both actors and actresses.

Meanwhile Kareena is waiting for Rohit Shetty's Singham Returns, also starring Ajay Devgn. The film is the second instalment of the 2011 Bollywood blockbuster "Singham" and is scheduled to release in August.
