The superstar Amitabh Bachchan paid Rs 70 crore as income tax for the financial year 2018-19.
This was announced by his spokesperson in a statement. He is one of the highest paying income taxpayers of the country who voluntarily discloses his income. Many prefer to stay away from announcing it but the income tax of superstars like Salman Khan is also pretty high.
This is noteworthy also that, Big B also paid off loans of 2,084 farmers in Muzaffarpur, Bihar. He has also donated Rs 10 lakh to the family members of each victim of the February 14 Pulwama terror attack.
But the ageless star has refused to stop working and continue to churn out movies after movies even if his contemporaries have long hung the boots. He recently did “Badla”.
Shot largely in Glasgow, Scotland, it is a mystery thriller which also features Taapsee Pannu, Amrita Singh, Tony Luke, Manav Kaul and Tanveer Ghani. The film is produced by Red Chillies Entertainment and Azure Entertainment.
Mr. Bachchan will soon be seen in fantasy trilogy ‘Brahmastra’, produced by Dharma Productions. It is releasing this Christmas. Also backed by Fox Star Studios, the movie stars Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan and Nagarjuna in key roles.
