In the last episode, Navya Naveli Nanda talked about the issue of pay parity, and how female athletes are paid lesser than male athletes. "In sports, female athletes are not paid as much as male athletes. It has happened in NBA and Tennis," disclosed Navya Naveli, who opened up about gender pay parity in her show. Shweta Bachchan who called this practice 'extremely unfair,' specified that this issue is happening constantly because nobody is raising their voices against it.

On this issue, Jaya Bachchan opined that the issue of gender pay parity is happening because of the insecurity of men. "It is the insecurity of a man who is sitting at the head of it. He is insecure, which is why he feels it is easier to put a woman down - in every field and in every way. It is an outcome of that kind of mindset," revealed the senior actress in the podcast.
