Actresses like Priyanka Chopra, Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Anushka Sharma have openly slammed the Hindi film industry for pay disparity.

But actress Juhi Chawla says he never got upset about the wage inequality and “accepted” that her male counterparts would get more than her.

The 48-year-old ‘Yess Boss’ actress says, “Pay disparity has always been there. It was there during our times too. There was no problem. It wasn’t something I got upset about.
