Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan paid Rs700 million in taxes for the financial year 2018-19, Economic Times reported.
“Mr Bachchan has paid Rs 70 crore tax for the financial year 2018-19,” his spokesperson said in a statement.
In the recent past, Big B also paid off loans of 2,084 farmers in Muzaffarpur, Bihar.
Bollywood’s Big B is currently busy in shooting his next fantasy film ‘Brahmastra’ which will be released on Christmas this year. Actors Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt and Nagarjun will also be seen in the movie.
The actor is reported to have turned down the role of a Pakistani protagonist following tensions between India and Pakistan in February 14.
He said he decided to turn down the role because he doesn’t want to embroil himself in any controversies or be labelled as an “anti-nationalist,” reported the Deccan Chronicle.
Pookutty, who will make his directorial debut with the movie, has reportedly been discussing the role with Bachchan for the past two years.
