Saif Ali Khan, whose recent release Phantom has earned Rs 33 crore in opening weekend, however does advocate giving a larger share of money to actresses if their film makes profits.

“If the actress is headlining a film and selling of the film is on her name and if the film makes a certain amount of money then she is entitled to a lion’s share. But I still feel unfortunately we are a bit male-centric. I would love that to change and have more equality and power for these girls, as they are phenomenal. They have got a lot of talent and presence and they certainly deserve more. But ultimately, they will only get what makes economic sense as this is the most fair business in the world,” he said.
