Responding to the concerns of some heroines about the disparity in remuneration of heroes and heroines, Karthi backed the ongoing process and explained that the same practice is being implemented across all sectors maybe except IT.
‘Remuneration of a person is like a stock market ad it keeps fluctuating. Films are marketed based on heroes, so it is not wrong if they are paid higher than heroines. Maybe IT is the only sector where women earn as much as men, but in all other sectors, men pocket high pay,’ Karthi said.
He, however, said that some heroine of this generation are pocketing more than heroes by acting in heroine-centric films.
On the work front, Karthi will be next seen in Kashmora, which is slated for release for Diwali. He is currently shooting for a Mani Ratnam Telugu-Tamil bilingual.
