New Delhi,13 November,2014:Â Commenting on the Supreme Court ruling that struck down the bar on women working as Bollywood make-up artists, actor Ranbir Kapoor says â€œbetter sense has prevailedâ€.
â€œBetter sense has prevailed. Itâ€™s quite a silly conversation actually. Women should be paid equally or more than a man as the amount of hard work she puts in is not less than a man,â€ Ranbir said at an event. The Supreme Court on Monday had struck down the provision that prohibited women make-up artists and hairdressers from becoming members of the Mumbai-based Cine Costume and Make-up Artists Association.
The actor also congratulated woman make-up artist Charu Khurana, who had challenged the clauses as being discriminatory to women, for ushering in change. â€œI will congratulate Charu for standing up and being the reason of a change,â€ he said. The actor now wants the change to be reflected in other avenues in the glamour industry. â€œI hope the pursuit is followed by other professions. For the film industry, I expect women to invade other male centric parts of the industry like stunt-women,â€ he said.
