Akshay Kumar had much to rue about this year but he remained a strong force economically. He was the highest tax payer from Bollywood, according to the list of Top 10 income tax payers from the film industry. He paid Rs. 31 crore as tax while Shah Rukh Khan came in second, having paid Rs. 30.99 crore.

The others in the list are: Salman Khan (Rs. 14 crore), Saif Ali Khan (Rs. 8.6 crore), Rajesh Khanna (Rs. 6.87 crore), Aishwarya Rai (Rs. 4.7 crore), Kareena Kapoor (Rs. 3.6 crore), Abhishek Bachchan (Rs. 3.2 crore), Himesh Reshammiya (Rs. 3 crore) and Amitabh Bachchan (Rs. 1.25 crore).

Anil Ambani of Reliance ADAG fulfilled his threat of going international in a big way when he tied up with Steven Spielberg of DreamWorks in an alliance to make 15-18 films together over the next three years, which called for a total investment of $825 million.

Of this, Reliance ADAG will pump in $325 million. It may seem like big money, and no doubt it is, but for Anil Ambani, it may be no more than a handful out of the well.
