LUCKNOW: Former Bollywood actress Jaya Prada, a two-term Lok Sabha parliamentarian from Rampur in Uttar Pradesh, has loses the election. She defeated by Mohd. Azam Khan of SP.

The 57-year-old actress was a member of the Samajwadi Party when she won in the 2004 and 2009 general elections.

Jaya Prada, who started her film career when she was barely in her teens, has acted in nearly 300 films including blockbusters like Sharaabi (1984), Aakhree Raasta (1986) and Khakee (2004).

Her return to Uttar Pradesh's Rampur as the BJP candidate was followed by much vilification from the rival camp in a narrative worthy of any Bollywood movie.

She made her political debut in 1994 as a member of the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). Jaya Prada's time with TDP saw controversy over party chief Chandrababu Naidu making her head of the Telugu Mahila, the women's wing of the party. The appointment, many party leaders felt, overlooked other senior members.

Her first term as a parliamentarian was in 1996, when she was nominated for the Rajya Sabha. She held the seat till 2002, during which time she served on a number of parliamentary committees, including those on industry, external affairs and the welfare of scheduled castes and tribes.
