It has only been a few days since Zeenat Aman made her Instagram debut and the legendary actress is already dropping truth bombs about the film industry. In her most recent post, she opened up about the gender pay gap.

Zeenat Aman shared an old video from her popular song Laila O Laila from the sets of Qurbani. She can be seen giving an interview. In her caption, she opened up about being the “highest paid female actress” but still taking home a smaller pay cheque than her male co-stars.

A post shared by Zeenat Aman (@thezeenataman)

Reacting to the post, Shweta Bachchan wrote, “Perfectly said and kept her point.”



Zeenat Aman wrote, “It’s been nearly 50 years since this footage was shot, and the industry has changed immensely since. The roles available to women are clearly not just ornamental anymore. What hasn’t changed though is the gender pay gap. In my time I was lauded as the “highest-paid female actor.”



She added, “The Zeenat you see in this clip was quite certain that half a century would be enough time to even the scales. So it disappoints me that even today women in the film industry don’t have wage parity.”
