National Award winning actress Kangana Ranaut on Thursday said she will "make sure" someday the divide between men and women in Bollywood in terms of paychecks is bridged.

"Few people are trying, like me. It is still a very, very male-dominated industry and yes hopefully, at some point, it will be equal and I am going to make sure that happens," she told the media here in response to a poser on her stance on the issue.

The actress was in the city to promote "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", which releases on May 22. The film is a sequel to the 2011 romantic comedy "Tanu Weds Manu".

"This is a love story on contemporary marriage. I don't think such stories are made. The humour in the movie is Asubtle and relatable," she said.

Kangana made her Bollywood debut with 2006 release hit "Gangster" and since then she has carved a special place by delivering exceptional performances in films like "Fashion" and "Queen".

In "Tanu Weds Manu Returns", she will be seen in a double role of Tanu and Kusum. Kusum is a tomboy of sorts and for the character, the actress had to go rustic and speak Haryanvi.

Kangana said shooting for the sequel was "stressful" due to the challenge of the double role.

Directed by Anand L. Rai, the film also features R. Madhavan, Deepak Dobriyal, Jimmy Shergill, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Dhanush.

The price difference has little to do with gender bias. Male actors generally have a larger role in films and get paid more. I don't see how one will reduce the pay difference caused by it or why it is necessary to do so.

Imran khan being paid more than katrina in MBKD or kareena in EMAET was ridiculous to say the least. Some things definitely need to be sorted out.

How exactly is she going to manage that? By first delivering a 30/ 40 crore opening & demanding as much as the Khans? While i agree that its ridiculous Imran gets paid more than a Katrina, the disparity is also a consequence of the BO clout the male stars posses in comparison to their female counterparts..

How? She acts in movies whose total budget is equal to the fee of a Khan for a single movie. She might get equal compensation to someone like Madhavan or Rajkumar.. but saying she will wipe the salary difference is so silly. You are no Sridevi
