MUMBAI: After the deadline for paying the final installment of advance tax for both corporates and individuals expired on 15 March, Akshay Kumar has emerged as Bollywood‘s top advance taxpayer for the sixth consecutive year when he paid Rs 180 million.

Last year Akshay gave a series of hits in films like Special 26, Khiladi 786, Housefull 2, Rowdy Rathore and Oh My God!

Close on the heels of Akshay Kumar was Salman Khan who paid Rs 110 million. The actor had two big releases viz Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2 that totally made more than Rs 2.5 billion at the box office in 2012.

While Shah Rukh Khan paid Rs 105 million, Aamir Khan returned with a seven-fold year-on-year increase by paying Rs 75 million. Shahid Kapoor‘s tax payout remained unchanged at Rs 10 million this year.

Among Bollywood‘s leading ladies, Katrina Kaif paid the highest tax of Rs 45 million while Kareena Kapoor Khan is said to have paid Rs 40 million. Priyanka Chopra paid Rs 20 million.

About 1.35 million returns were filed between 10 February and 10 March, an increase of more than 15 per cent over the 1.08 million returns filed in the year-ago period.
