Akshay Kumar is the highest tax payer in Bollywood, beats the top three Khans

Akshay Kumar

It’s not been long when Akshay Kumar was all over the micro-blogging site Twitter for being the first actor to earn Rs.2000 crore in his lifetime, now the actor has once again outnumbered the top three Khans.

According to a leading daily, the 45-year-old has become the highest advance income tax payer.

Akshay has apparently paid Rs.18 crore. Salman Khan is on the second spot; he has paid Rs.11 crore as advance income tax. Shah Rukh Khan comes third, as he has shelled out Rs.10.5 crore as tax. Aamir, meanwhile, is believed to have paid Rs.8 crore.

“No one will talk about these things openly, but the advance income tax payer list has thrown up a few surprises this year. For the past couple of years, Salman’s films have been blockbusters at the box office, but Akshay remains way ahead of the pack in terms of his tax payment,” the daily quotes a trade insider as saying.

Talking about female actors, Katrina Kaif paid the highest tax of Rs.4.5 crore while Kareena Kapoor Khan is said to have paid Rs.4 crore. Priyanka Chopra has paid a meagre Rs.2 crore.
Akki delivered back-to-back hits like Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and OMG: Oh My God! in 2012.
