Akshay Kumar pays more advance tax than Salman and Shahrukh!

                                     Akshay Kumar pays more advance tax than Salman and Shahrukh!
Akshay Kumar does it again! For sixth year on the trot, he has emerged the top advance taxpayer from Bollywood, surpassing the likes of other money-minters, namely Salman Khan and Shahrukh Khan.

Known for his alacrity when it comes to heeding the taxman, Akshay Kumar has loosened his purse strings to shell out a whopping Rs. 19 crore of advance tax this year. This is way more than the Rs. 11 crore paid by Salman Khan, who is the second highest advance taxpayer from film industry this year.

The difference can be explained thus. Akshay Kumar saw a slew of hits in 2012, namely Rowdy Rathore, OMG Oh My God!, Special 26 and Khiladi 786. Salman Khan, on the other hand, saw two releases, Ek Tha Tiger and Dabangg 2, both of which were runaway blockbusters.

On the third spot among top advance taxpayers is Shahrukh Khan. He had just one blockbuster Jab Tak Hai Jaan apart from a couple of brand endorsements last year. His advance tax is Rs. 10.5 crore. The third big Khan of Bollywood, Aamir Khan has paid a tax of Rs. 7.5 crore.

Among actresses, Katrina Kaif tops with an advance tax of Rs. 4.5 crore, followed by Kareena Kapoor (Rs. 4 crore) and Priyanka Chopra (Rs. 2 crore).
