I Can’t Compete with Salman Khan, No One Can : Shah Rukh Khan. No one in Bollywood can clash with Salman Khan, says Shah Rukh Khan ahead of Raees release.
In an interview to a magazine, Shah Rukh Khan revealed that he can’t compete with Salman Khan at the Box-Office and the Sultan star is the highest paid actor because his films do phenomenal business.
“Let’s look at it like this. I can’t compete with a Salman Khan at the box office; none of us can. That is the reality. In other fields like, say, with a male or a female pilot, both are paid equally for what they bring to the table. When we ask for equal pay, a lot of pressure is put on women actors to sell the movie on their own steam. I know that women actors work five times harder and get paid 10 times less than men,. Today, Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif and Priyanka Chopra take home really good pay packets, more than some heroes. And they deserve it. I don’t know if they take more than me or Salman but they’re celebrated for their worth.”
Shah Rukh Khan’s next film, Raees releases on 25 January 2017.
