Heroes have sleepless nights: Samantha

Heroes have sleepless nights: Samantha

Samantha Akkineni is not a votary of equal pay.  It's because heroines don't go through what heroes go through during every film.

"I don't think we actresses should demand equal pay.  The burden of recouping the huge budget of a film in just 3 days of release rests on the heroes.  They have sleepless nights because of this pressure.  When heroines too have that burden on them, they can expect equal pay," the 'U Turn' diva says.  

"It's a good time for women in films where Anushka, Nayanthara, Kangana and others are getting strong roles. They are BO winners as well.  Even we have to work really hard.  You can't sit idle and expect that you should get good roles," Sam avers.
