Yet again King Khan, Shah Rukh Khan reigns supreme as he becomes India’s top tax paying celebrity for the year 2010 to 2011. Last year, he lost this tax paying throne to Akshay Kumar who took accolades in the department. According to sources, SRK pays Rupees 5 Crores in taxes to the Indian government. Akshay Kumar follows a close second with Rupees 4.5 Crores. The following actors all come after King Khan and Khiladi Kumar with tax payments ranging from Rupees 4 Crores to Rupees 2.5 Crores: Aamir Khan, Saif Ali Khan and Ranbir Kapoor. In a not so surprising turn of events, Hrithik Roshan who paid a whopping Rupees 3 Crores in taxes last year, only jutted out 50 Lakhs this year.
As for the leading ladies, Katrina Kaif is the highest tax paying actress in India who gives away Rupees 1.3 Crores to taxes with Kareena Kapoor coming a close second as she gives Rupees 1 Crores away this year in taxes.
Missing from the top tax paying list are the Bachchan’s, including bahu Aishwarya who one would have thought would have been a part of the top tax paying celebs in the country. The grapevines believe next year, it will be Salman Khan who will top the charts.
