In a significant revelation connected to the upcoming term of office for veteran actress Jaya Bachchan, the power couple of Bollywood, Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, have publicly declared their combined assets amounting to over Rs 1,578 Crore. This declaration comes as Jaya Bachchan prepares to serve her fifth term in the Rajya Sabha, having been nominated by the Samajwadi Party as their representative from Uttar Pradesh.

The assets outlined in the election affidavit encompass a formidable bank balance of Rs 130 crore and ownership of 17 luxury automobiles. The duo’s assets include both movable and immovable properties that account for a substantial portion of their wealth. Specifically, Jaya Bachchan reported a personal bank balance of Rs 10.11 crore, while Amitabh Bachchan’s account stands at a hefty Rs 120.45 crore.

In terms of movable assets, the couple has valued them at an impressive Rs 849.11 crore, whereas their immovable property holdings are worth Rs 729.77 crore. These figures offer a glimpse into the lifestyle and financial standing of one of India’s most illustrious couples.

Both Amitabh and Jaya have diverse sources of income that have contributed to their vast wealth. On the one hand, Jaya Bachchan’s income streams include endorsements, her parliamentary salary, and acting fees. Her recent return to acting in “Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani” signals a renewed presence in Bollywood after several years of focusing on her political career.

Conversely, Amitabh Bachchan, an icon of the Indian film industry, has his income spread across multiple channels such as interest, rent, dividends, capital gains, and a profitable solar plant in addition to his substantial earnings as a professional actor. His visibility remains unshaken, with recent and upcoming appearances in various films and his long-standing role as the host of the popular TV show “Kaun Banega Crorepati.”

Adding to their extravagant asset base, Jaya Bachchan is known to possess jewellery worth Rs 40.97 crore and a car valued at Rs 9.82 lakh. Amitabh’s treasure chest is even more opulent, comprising jewellery estimated at Rs 54.77 crore and a fleet of 16 vehicles, with a combined worth of Rs 17.66 crore, including high-end brands such as Mercedes and Range Rover.

Remarkably, the couple’s declared assets in 2018 amounted to Rs 1000 crore, showing a significant increase in their fortunes over the past five years. With Jaya’s involvement in politics and Amitabh’s continuous work in the entertainment industry, they exemplify a dynamic conjunction of India’s cultural and public spheres.

Amitabh Bachchan’s resilience and popularity in the performing arts are underscored by his roles in the recent film “Ganapath” in 2023 and his forthcoming performances in films like “Kalki 2898 AD” and the Rajinikanth-led “Vettaiyan.”

This disclosure not only portrays the financial bearings of the Bachchans but also highlights the transparency required in Indian politics and the entertainment industry’s contribution to the livelihoods of its stalwarts. The figures make clear the magnitude of their success and the affluence that comes with it, cementing their position as one of India’s most influential couples.
