Radhika Apte is one actress who is known for her candid nature and is not someone who will shy away from expressing her vies and opinions. And now; in a recent no barrier interview with Mumbai Mirror, the Andhadhund actress has bared her thoughts about the much loved industry word; NEPOTISM!


Apte says she does not like the word nepotism. She further said," I don't like the word outsider. If I'm a director and my son wants to be an actor, why shouldn't I launch him? The industry today is a blend of both worlds."


She further said," On one hand there's Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone and Kangana Ranaut who were not born into a film family but have made it big and then there are the star kids. I like that abroad you can go to drama school and then for auditions like everyone else for a role. It's a fair playing ground there. With casting directors in Bollywood, things are changing here too." 


Radhika; who was last seen opposite Dev Patel and Jim Sarbh, in the British-American action thriller, The Wedding Guest, was asked about the difference in the two industries. Radhika replied saying," People there are always on time and they pay on time. These are the two significant differences."


Further speaking about the significant pay disparity between male and female actors in Bollywood; Radhika said," Even today, there is a yawning gap between films with male and female protagonists. If Salman Khan brings in Rs 200 crore and I bring in not even a crore, it's obvious that he'll be paid more since he is adding value to the box-office. I don't dispute that but I have an issue with actors who don't contribute to ticket sales. Hey, even the mother of a lead character is paid lesser than the father. That needs to change."
