Bollywood actress Yami Gautam who made her Bollywood debut in the movie 'Vicky Donor' has now been a part of the industry for six years and has featured in several films in Bollywood as well as down south. The pay parity between male and female actors has always been a matter of discussion in Bollywood. 

Yami Gautam while talking to a daily news website said that people do not express a lot of things. She said that there is a sense of fear that if you say something you will be judged or it will be misconstrued into a wrong headline. Taking further about pay parity, the 'Badlapur' actress said that it is a complex issue and that nobody wants to upset anyone. She said that there are a couple of things that will take time, but they will happen eventually. Yami Gautam feels that someone with a strong opinion just has to take up the initiative for things to change.
