"Now, it seems to me, even taking Indian cinema in consideration, I feel like this year we have kind of experienced a shift in humanity.

"In India, actually, there has been a large disparity in how much a female and male actor gets paid, but this year, one actress changed all that."

Kapoor has reportedly been paid Rupees 8 crore for director Madhur Bhandarkar's Heroine, the highest that has ever been paid to any leading lady in the history of Bollywood.

The 3 Idiots actress has also starred in four films that have grossed over 100 crores at the domestic box office in less than two years.

Slumdog Millionaire star Pinto has previously denied that she shuns Indian films in favour of Hollywood.
