Being a successful businessman, Ananta Jalil‘s basic income source is business. However, his income streams come from different sectors (business, acting, film producing), that’s why his net worth isn’t too small. However, he checks the quality of all his garment products to ensure high quality before packaging them for delivery. As a result, every year, his garments get many orders from international buyers, and a large proportion of his income comes from his garment factory.

Though he earns a high amount of money every year, he doesn’t like to spend them on his expenses. Most of his net worth is spent on the welfare of poor people.
