Television  actress Deepshikha Nagpal says she cannot blame the tv industry for being sexist as the entire Indian society is male dominated.

Hindi tv actress Deepshikha Nagpal has had a long history of working in all sorts of Hindi tv shows. The actor has also seen the progression of many things in the industry. In a recent interview, the actress addressed the question of male dominance in the Hindi tv show industry. Nagpal has said that there is never a huge pay gap between male and female co-stars in Hindi tv shows. Deephshikha said that she does not think it is fair to blame the industry as the entire society is male-dominated.

 
She said, “It is a male-dominating society and it is everywhere. I do not see a difference in payments based on gender. Yes, newcomers face problems but it is not gender-wise. Newcomers paid less but irrespective of the gender. I cannot blame the industry everywhere else as well.”
 
"I did TV when TV was looked down upon and was new. Then, you'd get into acting if you could not do well in studies. That has changed. Now with everyone wanting to be an actor, it is a profession and industry with people actually trained in the craft," she added.
