She has often lashed out at those in the Opposition, whether it was Urmila Matondkar (who had joined the Congress briefly in 2019 before joining the Shiv Sena) or Congress leader Supriya Srinate.

With this, the 37-year-old actor joins the long list of movie stars like Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan, Hema Malini, Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Vinod Khanna and Shatrughan Sinha, who have tried their hand at politics.


On the work front, the actor is ready with her directorial film on Indira Gandhi, Emergency, where she plays the central role.

Will it paint a true picture of the formidable leader? The answer seems quite obvious now.
