Samantha Ruth Prabhu, one of the most well-liked actors in the business today, discussed wage equity in the movie business in an interview with Pinkvilla. She said, “I am fighting hard, not directly…it’s not like I am fighting to be paid equally, I want it to be a byproduct of the hard work and success. People should just come and say, ‘Yes, we want to pay you this much.’ I shouldn’t have to beg for it. I believe that comes with an incredible amount of hard work.”

Samantha further added, “When I put up this quote in my bio which says, ‘Whatever your capabilities, you must stretch them to the limit and a little beyond’ and when you are a woman in this industry, it’s not just enough to stretch your capabilities to your limits, but then you need that a little more. There’s stress on a ‘little more’ because it’s just that much harder.”

For those who are unfamiliar, Samantha Ruth Prabhu was identified with myositis last year, an uncommon auto-immune condition. She took time away from the filming to focus on her treatment, and she has since recovered.

In Citadel, Samantha will co-star with Varun Dhawan, in addition to that, she has another film with Vijay Deverakonda scheduled, Khushi, which is set to open in cinemas on September 1, 2023.
