Aamir Khan, the highest tax payer in Bollywood

While Bollywood Monarch Aamir Khan has been repeating time and again that he is not in a race to become the highest tax payer, he has paid more tax than his Bollywood colleagues for financial year of 2009-10. Fresh from his 48th ton in Colombo, Sachin Tendulkar paid a tax of `6.8 crore.

According to sources, most Bollywood actors paid less than the previous year. For example, Akshay Kumar’s latest tax outgo is `18 crore, which is 41% lower than the tax he paid in the previous assessment. Continuing with Aamir Khan, he has recently told Ms. Anurradha Prasad in her popular TV show ` Aamne-Samne` that he is not at all in the race to become highest tax payer. He has paid staggering Rs 12.90 crore. It is more than any other Bollywood star.

Shah Rukh Khan has paid far less than last year; at `9.5 crore, his tax payment was 70% less than the previous year. Reigning superstar Aamir Khan, who is in the limelight for a series of successful movies, is the only actor who paid more than his previous records. A tax outgo of `12.89 crore shows Aamir paid about 12% more than previous year. Hrithik Roshan and Salman Khan saw a steep fall in their tax payments. While Hrithik paid `6.5 crore, half of last year’s payments, Salman Khan with `5.5-crore tax outgo, was paying 60% less.
