I’ve Men In My Life Who Are Insecure Of My Success: Priyanka Chopra Talks About Pay Inequality


New Delhi: PeeCee has been making startling revelations while promoting Citadel.

Speaking to ANI, Priyanka reflected on the issue of pay parity between men and women. She also discussed how the insecurity of men plays a role in pay inequality.

“I have some incredible men in my life who are not insecure of my success but I also have men in my life who are very insecure of my success,” she said. “So, I think that men have enjoyed the freedom and pride of being the bread winners or leaders of the family.”

“It’s threatening to their territory when a woman does that or if a woman is more successful or a man is staying at home and woman is going out to work.”

Priyanka emphasised raising sons sans gender-based stereotypes.

“They (men) will feel bad, but we have to teach our sons that there is no shame in crying. There is no shame in shedding tears. There is no shame in giving the spotlight to your mothers, sisters, girlfriends,” she said.

She recalled how her father always supported her mother and never felt insecure about her success.

“My dad did it to my mother. She was getting into private practice and he was still in the military. My mom started earning more than my father, but they saw it as a unit because ‘ghar pe hi toh aa raha hai’. There was no ego.”

Meanwhile, with Citadel series, Priyanka has managed to achieve pay parity for the very first time in her career of 22 years in the entertainment industry, as revealed by the actress.
