Priyanka Chopra on getting equal pay for first time in 23-year career
Priyanka Chopra has opened up about how she’s getting equal pay for the first time in her 23-year-long career.
During the promotion of her new spy thriller Citadel, the 40-year-old actor told The View’s host that she’s finally receiving equal pay.
“Thank God. 23 years later. But I do think – and I have talked about this a little bit – the head of film and TV for Amazon Prime is Jennifer Salke whose idea was Citadel,” Chopra Jonas said.
“She came in five years ago and she wanted to build this global universe. I wonder if the head of the studio was not female, would this have been a different conversation?
“Would it have been a conversation because with her it wasn’t. They [the team] went back and said, ‘They’re playing co-leads, and should be paid the same.’ She was like, ‘Yeah, it’s only fair’.”
