Noida: Commenting on the Supreme Court ruling that struck down the bar on women working as Bollywood make-up artists, actor Ranbir Kapoor says "better sense has prevailed".

“Better sense has prevailed. It's quite a silly conversation actually. Women should be paid equally or more than a man as the amount of hard work she puts in is not less than a man,” Ranbir said at an event held at Buddh International Circuit here.

The Supreme Court Monday had struck down the provision that prohibited women make-up artists and hairdressers from becoming members of the Mumbai-based Cine Costume and Make-up Artists Association.

The actor also congratulated woman make-up artist Charu Khurana, who had challenged the clauses as being discriminatory to women, for ushering in change.

“I will congratulate Charu for standing up and being the reason of a change,” the 32-year-old actor said.

After the verdict, the actor wants the change to be reflected in other avenues in the glamour industry.

“I hope the pursuit is followed by other professions. For the film industry, I expect women to invade other male centric parts of the industry like stunt-women,” said the “Besharam" actor.
