I can't expect same amount of money invested in my film as Varun's, says Alia Bhatt

by Vibhuti Gupta, Thursday, July 05, 2018

When we think of Alia Bhatt now, we know that the girl has something to inspire us all from. There is now way that the audience will not like her on-screen but still she believes that her Badrinath Ki Dulhania co-star Varun Dhawan has a ‘wider reach’ than hers, and thus she can’t expect the same amount of money invested in her film as his.

Alia & Varun will be seen together in Kalank

“Investing money in a film is directly co-related to the people you are bringing to the theatre. I’m not delusional that the same number of viewers who go to watch Varun’s movies will come to see my work. He has a wider reach than me. That’s why I can’t expect that the same amount of money, which is invested in his solo-starrers, is invested in mine, too," said Alia in an exclusive interview.

This comes after Bollywood's leading actors have openly spoken about pay disparity. Actors including Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, who has been very vocal about equal pay for both genders and Deepika Padukone, who revealed that she was paid more than her Padmaavat co-stars Ranveer Singh and Shahid Kapoor.

“I’ll neither undervalue nor overvalue myself because there’s a certain arrogance that comes along with it," added Alia.

On a related note, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan will be seen in Dharma Productions next venture, Kalank. Helmed by Abhishek Varman, the film also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt.
