Taapsee Pannu, Kriti Sanon criticise lack of credit given to female actors for success of Badla, Luka Chuppi
Amidst the ensuing debate regarding gender parity and pay parity in Indian film industries, two actresses have recently opened up to voice their opinion on the issue. Badla actress Taapsee Pannu recently quoted a tweet crediting only the male lead for the success of the thriller and called out the journalist, stating that the women in the films mentioned had worked equally hard.
मेहनत शायद इन फ़िल्मों की लड़कियों ने भी उतनी ही करी है .... लगता है समय नहीं मिला होगा आपको लिखने का https://t.co/ysF49CDZPQ

Taapsee took a sarcastic jibe at the publication further adding that they may have not got the time to register the fact that the women worked as hard as the men to make these films successful.
The publication even apologised to the actress stating that her point would be taken into consideration by them henceforth.
Dear @taapsee We apologise if this made you feel bad in anyways. In the office where majority staff is female we know how hard working women are and we will take your feedback into consideration the very minute.
P.S. you were fabulous in #Badla.

Meanwhile, fans came out in full support of the actresses, lauding them for their spunk and honesty.
No. You still don't get it!! She complained that you mentioned those files as Amitabh and Kartik Starrer! And all you can say is that there are so many females in your office! Are you kidding? You needed to correct your mistake. You did not have to rationalize your behavior. — Watchful Eyes (@SpiritualityMe) March 16, 2019
