On the show, Kareena said that actors in Hollywood stood up for the female actors and demanded equal pay and she asked if Bollywood actors should do the same. To which, Anil said, "You took a lot of money from me" and Kareena started laughing after she heard this and said "we are breaking the barriers, we are doing that but there are still some people.."
Anil recalled the incident from Veere Di Wedding and said that makers told him that Kareena was demanding more money than the hero but he approved it by saying, "Give Bebo whatever she demands."
The AK vs AK actor also revealed that several times he had been paid less than the female co-actors and he was fine with it. He said, "There are so many films where the leading actress has taken more money and maine khushi khushi kiya."
