Shahid Kapoor reply on Kangana’s comment
During an Interview, Shahid replied to comment, 3 Heroes in Rangoon, which made by Kangana. Shahid said that “are our heroines less than anyone? Why she doesn’t say that there are three heroines in the movie? In my point of view there are three protagonists in the movie, as there is no difference between being a hero or heroine. So, I don’t think that showing ourselves as a hero will makes you bigger person.”
He did not express only express his views on the difference of being a hero or heroine he also told about the demanding fees of other actors nowadays. Kangana also increased her fees to INR Rs.11 crores after the success of her previous movie like Tanu Weds Manu Returns and Queen.
Shahid Kapoor said that “he never complaint about her fees, as everyone has their own particular market and that’s why amount of fees also varies from star to star” and he added that “if a person is getting lower money than what he actually deserve, then it can be a problem”.
