Bachchan Slams Bollywood Tax Rich List

Bollywood legend AMITABH BACHCHAN is furious about a new list of India's biggest taxpayers - insisting he should be top. The actor - dubbed The Big B - insists he personally pays a staggering 155.9 million Rupees ($3.78 million/GBP1.9 million) a year in income tax, more than fellow actors Hrithik Roshan and Shah Rukh, who were listed above him in the Indian rich list. Bachchan, 64, says, "I'm surprised by the report and I've serious doubts about its authenticity. Because my name isn't mentioned anywhere among the top most taxpayers of the entertainment business. This gives the utterly false impression that I make pots of money and don't pay up enough taxes." The icon adds that since the marriage last month (Apr07) of his son Abhishek Bachchan and Bollywood queen Aishwarya Rai, his family pays even more money to the Indian government. Bachchan adds, "Abhishek Bachchan has paid 47.5 million Rupees ($1.15 million/GBP575,000). And now that Aishwarya Rai is a part of the family, approximately 50 million Rupees ($1.2 million/GBP600.000) tax money has come from her. This makes it a total of 253 million Rupees ($6.15 million/GBP3.07 million)."
