‘For the first time in a career of 22 years, I got salary equal to that of an actor’ – Priyanka Chopra

Priyanka Chopra News: Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas, who is gearing up for the release of her upcoming spy-action thriller series ‘Citadel’, shared that she got equal pay for the first time in her 22-year career. Priyanka Chopra, in an interview with Jennifer Salke, head of Amazon Studios, at the opening of the recent South by Southwest Film Festival, said, “I might get in trouble for saying this. It also depends on who is watching it. I have been working in the entertainment industry for 22 years, I have done around 70 features and two TV shows.

Used to get less fees even after doing equal work- Priyanka

Priyanka Chopra said, “When I did Citadel, it was the first time that I got equal pay. I’m laughing at this, but it’s kind of crazy. I used to do equal work, but I got less fees, but the ease with which Amazon Studios said, this is what you deserve, you are the co-lead, this is fair, and I was like that. You are right, it is fine.

‘Citadel’ is Prime Video’s upcoming big-budget, globe-trotting spy thriller, produced by Russo Brothers and showrunner David Weil, and also stars Richard Madden alongside Priyanka.

The actress further said, I wonder if this happened because there are very few female decision makers in Hollywood? Would it be a different conversation if a woman didn’t make that decision? Those are not conversations that went very smoothly.
