Kangana Ranaut has said that despite being the “highest-paid actress” in Bollywood, she is unable to pay her taxes on time as she had “no work.” The actor shared on Instagram Story that she is yet to pay half of the tax money she owes the government. Ranaut, who recovered from Covid-19 last month, added that the government is charging her interest on the pending amount but she “still welcomes the move. Time could be tough for us individually, but together we are tougher than the time,” she wrote.
“Even though I come under highest tax slab, pay almost 45% of my income as tax, even though I am the highest tax-paying actress but because of no work [I] haven’t paid half of my last year’s tax yet, first time in my life I am late in paying tax,” Kangana wrote.
Kangy is awaiting the release of the multilingual 'Thalaivi', which was postponed due to the spike in virus cases. Directed by Vijay and written by KV Vijayendra Prasad, the movie is about the life of J Jayalalithaa, former Tamil Nadu CM and actor. The film was earlier slated to release theatrically on April 23.
Kangana will also headline movies 'Tejas' and actioner 'Dhaakad', while 'Manikarnika Returns: The Legend Of Didda' and a film on former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi are in the pipeline.
