"In TV industry today, women are paid much higher than their male counterparts" - Actress Raveena Tandon

Actress Raveena Tandon stated on Wednesday at a panel of the "National Conclave on Mann Ki Baat @100" that women in the Hindi film industry have broken the "glass ceiling" and have entered every male bastion. Tandon, a prominent figure in Hindi cinema of the 1990s and early 2000s, asserted that the film industry might learn from sister industries TV and OTT (over-the-top) platforms, which are pioneers in improving wages for women and creating shows with strong female leads, respectively.  

"We also talk about pay disparity but in the TV industry today, women are paid much higher than their male counterparts, which is a great thing because of the kind of work they do and I think in our TV industry, women rule. In OTT platforms too, the protagonists are mostly women, women issues are discussed.

"In the film industry, we are going there slowly but surely because it has been a male dominated industry since the beginning but there is definitely a change. Our women have broken the glass ceiling, we have entered every male bastion...," the 48-year-old actor said, addressing the 'Nari Shakti' session here.
