Pay disparity is one topic of concern for all the B-town actresses out there. Despite working equally hard as their co-stars, actresses end up taking home less money as compared to the actors. But thanks to actresses like Deepika Padukone, Kangana Ranaut and Vidya Balan, who are fighting for equality and winning too! Recently, in a tete-a-tete with Anupama Chopra, Varun Dhawan commented on pay disparity and said that he called Alia Bhatt 'stupid' for not hiking her fee.
Varun Has A Point!
Talking about Alia Bhatt's success, Varun Dhawan was quoted as saying, "Why has it taken the trade and the industry as a whole until a Raazi to realise that Alia Bhatt is a big star?"

"Be it Badrinath Di Kulhania, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and even 2 States were all hits and Alia Bhatt was just as responsible for its success as I was or Arjun was."
Varun Also Insisted Alia To Hike Her Fee
Varun, who has worked with Alia Bhatt in three films which include Student Of The Year, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Badrinath Ki Dulhania said, "I would always tell Alia, what are you doing? You take very little money. Are you stupid? Increase your price."
