Often, we notice several heroines complain about the huge gap between the paychecks of the female and male actors in the film industries across the country. Most heroines equivocally voice their demand for a hike in their pay on par with the male stars.

Yesterday, Tamil star Karthi said in an interview to a leading national media house that the gender pay gap exists in all fields except in the IT industry. Karthi said that it’s the market and demand that determine an actresses pay and that heroines are paid what they rightly deserve.
