After a successful stint in Bollywood, Jaya Bachchan decided to join politics and in 2004, she was elected from Samajwadi Party as the Member of Parliament and she is currently completing her third term as the MP, representing Rajya Sabha. Now, as per the latest reports doing the rounds, Jaya Bachchan had submitted an affidavit at the time of filing for nomination for her fourth term and according to that document, she claimed to own assets worth Rs 1,000 crore jointly with her husband, megastar, Amitabh Bachchan. If her claims are true, she could possibly be India’s richest MP with an asset of 10 billion.
According to the reports published in the TOI, an affidavit submitted by Jaya stated that the couple owns immovable assets worth more than Rs 460 crore. Besides this, the couple jointly owns jewellery worth Rs 62 crore. The movable assets owned by them are close to Rs 540 crore. If this wasn’t enough, the star couple also own 12 vehicles which include three Mercedes, one Rolls Royce, one Porsche and one Range Rover. Besides these luxury cars, they also own a Tata Nano and a tractor.
The couple not only owns properties in various parts of India but also a 3175 sq m residential property in Brignogan Plage in France. Alongside, Jaya Bachchan also owns a 1.22-hectare agricultural plot worth Rs 2.2 crore in Kakori area of Lucknow. Not only Jaya, but Big B also owns a 3-acre plot worth Rs 5.7 crore in Daulatpur area of Barabanki district.
If you are finding it hard to digest, then there is more. The couple also owns expensive watches and pens worth Rs 4 crore. Amitabh owns a pen which costs somewhere near Rs 9 lakh. The actress-turned-politician had claimed assets worth Rs 500 crore in 2012 and now, the amount has doubled in 2018. This declaration of assets worth Rs 1000 crore can make Jaya Bachchan the richest Parliamentarian in India if she gets elected. The record of being the richest Parliamentarian was previously held by Ravindra Kishore Sinha, who declared assets worth 8 billion in 2014.
We are waiting for the time when Jaya Bachchan will be re-elected and she will ultimately become the richest MP in India, because of the constant support from her husband.
