Priyanka Chopra Jonas Says Pay Parity With Male Co-Star On ‘Citadel’ Is A First



Priyanka Chopra Jonas says she achieved pay parity with a male co-star for the first time in her upcoming spy series ‘Citadel’ for Amazon Prime Video.
Chopra Jonas is leading the series with Richard Madden who played Robb Stark on ‘Game of Thrones’
“I’ve never had pay parity in Bollywood. I’ve done 60-something movies, I think, but I’ve never got paid the same amount as my male co-actor,” Chopra Jonas said in an interview with BBC.
“I would get paid about 10% of my male co-actor,” she said. The Indian and South Asian star found a place in Hollywood in 2015 on the ABC series ‘Quantico.’
“My generation of female actors have definitely asked [for equal pay]. We’ve asked, but we’ve not got it,” she said.
