Shahrukh Khan Bollywood’s top taxpayer

Many actors like Rani Mukherjee, Abhishek Bachchan have become household names thanks to the products they endorse. But there’s a price attached to this ‘benefit’ – tax. Shah Rukh tops the list of taxpayers among brand ambassadors this year.

Shahrukh Khan has proved that he is indeed the ‘Baadshah of Bollywood’ as he emerged as the No.1 tax payer for the second quarter of Financial Year 2010-11. The actor paid Rs. 5 crores to the Income Tax Department as compared to Rs. 3.5 crore that he paid during the same quarter last year.

The actor topped the list of taxpayers among brand ambassadors this year, beating even cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, who paid a service tax of Rs. 1.93 crores.
