Raashii Khanna Bats For ‘Better Paychecks’ For Female Artists says, ‘There is a huge gap’ | ABP News

Female artists have made huge strides whether it is at the Cannes Film Festival or the box office success of films such as “Crew” and “Aranmanai 4” and it’s high time it reflects in their paychecks, says actor Raashii Khanna. Khanna, whose Tamil film “Aranmanai 4” has done well at the box office, said the success of female stars led movies such as “Crew” and “Article 370”, is a validation for all the female artistes of the country. “Art and cinema should be beyond gender. It’s high time we treat it like that. Films like ‘Article 370’ or ‘Crew’ and our film have only proven that women are as far ahead as men are.
“Even this conversation shouldn’t exist in times where everybody should be treated equally. The art is judged by the way it is made, not by who is in it. We should also get better paychecks in films honestly because there is a huge gap. I hope that happens in time. Seeing those women (in Cannes) is an amazing feeling,” says Actress. Khanna said there should be no doubt that women artistes can carry a film on their shoulders.  “Aranmanai 4”, the fourth installment in the franchise, is directed and written by Sundar C, who also features in the movie. The film also features Ramachandra Raju, Santhosh Prathap, Kovai Sarala, Yogi Babu, VTV Ganesh, Delhi Ganesh and K S Ravikumar in pivotal roles.
