Actress Sonakshi Sinha says now is the best time to be in the Hindi film industry, as she feels female actors are not only getting meatier roles but are also being given their due in terms of pay.
"I think now is the best time to be in this industry for an actress as there are wonderful roles written for women, films centre around the female protagonist like Akira," Sonakshi said.
"The pay disparity is also decreasing. Actresses are getting their due today be it awards or accolades for their work," the 29-year-old actress added.
Her recently released film Akira, directed by A R Murugadoss, has apparently garnered approximately Rs 30 crore and Sonakshi is happy with the box office response. "I am thrilled with the response to Akira. The film was resting on my shoulders and the box office collection has been great. I think the film was in plus (referring to profit)," she said.
