Shah Rukh Khan will be the highest income-tax payer from Bollywood for the second year in a row!
He has paid advance taxes of Rs 27 crore till December 15, 2007, putting his income for 2007-08 at over Rs 100 crore!
It's a glittering jump from the money he made the previous fiscal, when he paid a modest Rs 18 crore in tax.
2007 has been a particularly prosperous year for Shah Rukh Khan.
He not only had two mega hits under his belt - Chak De! India and Om Shanti Om (which he produced also) - but also earned Rs 1 crore for every episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati.
In the income-tax stakes, SRK is far ahead of the competition. Here's a quick look on the Advance Tax paid by other stars:
# Amitabh Bachchan - Rs 1.5 crore
# Abhishek Bachchan - Rs 3.7 crore
# Aishwarya Rai Bachchan - Rs 1.6 crore
# Aamir Khan - Rs 3 crore
# Akshay Kumar - Rs 7 crore
# Kareena Kapoor - Rs 1 crore
No wonder, Shah Rukh is called King Khan!
