Recently, actor-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar joined the Shiv Sena on Tuesday, 1st December. Party President and Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray were also present during her joining.

Earlier on Monday, News agency PTI had reported that Maharashtra Chief Minister and Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray’s close aide Harshal Pradhan has mentioned that the 46-year-old actress will join the party in the presence of Thackeray on Tuesday.
