What's noteworthy is her declaration: she announced assets worth Rs. 1,000cr, and could well be India's richest MP.

The Samajwadi Party has once again nominated Bachchan overlooking Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agrawal, who immediately quit the party and joined rival BJP.

Bachchan is a three-time MP and was first elected to the Upper House by the Samajwadi Party in 2004 till March 2006.

Jaya, the wife of megastar Amitabh Bachchan had recently filed her nomination for the Rajya Sabha polls as a SP candidate from Uttar Pradesh.

Poll panel officials say that with assets adding up to nearly Rs 1,000 crore, Jaya Bachchan could well be walking into the Rajya Sabha as the richest lawmaker at present. Then she was twice re-elected in 2006 and 2012.

The couple also owns12 vehicles worth over Rs 13 crore.

Actress-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan has declared movable and immovable assets worth Rs 493 crore in her affidavit to the Election Commission (EC). It is quite astonishing to believe that Jaya Bachchan has watches of just worth Rs.51 lakhs.

Besides, there is a 3,175 sqm residential property in Brignogan Plage in France, properties in Noida, Bhopal, Pune, Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. This include a Rolls-Royce, three Mercedes, a Porsche and a Range Rover. Amitabh possesses a pen worth over INR0.9 million. No doubt, he looks like an exact duplicate of Amitabh Bachhan, and maybe he should also try such a look. Amitabh is the owner of a 3 acre plot in Barabanki district's Daulatpur area of value Rs.5.7 crores.
