If you think that demonetization will have an impact on the earnings of Bollywood star heroes, you are wrong. The amount of advance tax paid by the prominent celebs this quarter illustrates a shocking jump in the earnings of celebs.
If not the Khans, Khiladi Akshay Kumar used to top this list but we have a surprising topper this year, Hrithik Roshan, who had tasted the biggest disaster of his career in the form of ‘Mohenjo Daro’ this year.
In the third quarter of this financial year 2015-16, Hrithik has reportedly paid an advance tax of Rs 80 crore compared to Rs 50 crore for the same quarter last year. Despite Mohenjo Daro tanked at box office, Hrithik reportedly pocketed a good earning out of it.
Aamir Khan is at 2nd position as he has paid an advance tax of Rs 72 crore as compared to Rs 34 crore in last year. Ranbir Kapoor is at third place with an advance tax of Rs 37 crore. He had paid only Rs 9 crore in 2015.
Salman Khan is at 4th place with Rs 14 crore of advance tax compared to Rs 10 crore in 2015. Akshay Kumar is next in the list. The tax paid by Shah Rukh Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Priyanka Chopra has not been revealed.
Reportedly, all of these celebs had received their earnings much before the govt. announced the demonetization.
