Bollywood stars are amongst the highest taxpayers
If you thought Bollywood was financially the most disorganised industry, think again. Our top Bollywood stars are amongst the highest taxpayers.
This year so far Akshay Kumar has emerged as the highest taxpayer in Bollywood for shelling out Rs 26 crore as income tax, since he signed and completed the maximum number of films last year.
But considering the fact that big wigs like Shah Rukh Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are yet to file their returns – the figure for the highest taxpayer is expected to be much higher.
The estimate of the tax figure paid by the top seven stars is expected to touch the Rs 100 crore-mark, which indeed will give a boost to the Income Tax Department.
