Bollywood actors and actresses earn a lot of money, both from their films and from their numerous side businesses. As a result, they are among the top taxpayers in the nation. When it comes to paying taxes in the nation, one actress stands out.

According to GQ India, Deepika Padukone is presently regarded as the highest taxpaying actress in Bollywood because she paid a staggering Rs 10 crore in taxes in the FY 2016-2017 and has continued to pay a comparable amount ever since.

No other actress has paid close to Rs 10 crore in taxes as of yet. Alia Bhatt, who is known to pay between Rs 5-6 crore in taxes annually, is ranked second on the list.

With almost Rs 5 crore in taxes paid for the fiscal year 2013–2014, Bollywood actress Katrina Kaif previously held the title of highest-taxed actress in the industry. Deepika Padukone eventually overtook her due to the widespread success of her new projects and promising financial opportunities.

According to StockGro, Deepika Padukone has a net worth of about Rs 500 crore and makes Rs 40 crore annually. The Pathaan actress has also raised her movie fees since 2018. She presently demands between Rs 15 and Rs 20 crore for motion pictures and more than Rs 8 crore for sponsorships.

Pathaan, Deepika’s most recent film starring Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, was a box office success that brought in a total of Rs 1030 crore globally. Deepika is the highest-taxing actress in Bollywood thanks to her enormous net worth and income.

While Akshay Kumar pays the most taxes in Bollywood, Deepika Padukone is the highest-paid actress on the list of actors, according to numerous media sources. According to sources, Akshay Kumar pays taxes totaling more than Rs 25 crore annually.
