After Priyanka Chaturvedi, it’s going to be Urmila to be the poster lady of Shiv Sena on social media. Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar, who had contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket and stop the social gathering later, will be a part of the Shiv Sena to strengthen them on social media. Urmila is a well-known and clever individual from Mumbai; she is aware of find out how to take care of sure controversies and at all times stood by Maharashtra and its folks. Matondkar’s title has been forwarded to governor B S Koshyari by the Shiv Sena for nomination to the Legislative Council from the governor’s quota. Although Urmila Matondkar’s political starting was unsuccessful. She contested the 2019 Lok Sabha election from the Mumbai North constituency as a Congress candidate. Nonetheless, she had later stop the social gathering over the functioning of the Mumbai unit of the Congress, and people days Modi magic was on the peak. Lately, she had criticised actor Kangana Ranaut for evaluating Mumbai with Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK) and the nepotism subject. The continuing spat between the Shiv Sena and actor Kangana Ranaut will not be the primary occasion of a struggle between the social gathering and Hindi movie personalities. It, nevertheless, is the primary one the place a Bollywood persona has taken the Sena head-on. Through the years, the Sena has taken up points focusing on movies or actors as and when it suited their political agendas – from batting for the rights of Marathi manoos to raking up something associated to Pakistan or Hindutva. No actors had the heart to tackle Thackeray’s the incorrect manner. Nonetheless, this modified just lately after Ranaut’s assault on the social gathering. Kangana demolished the picture of Uddhav and his son, she known as out names to spew venom at them. Uddhav might need assigned Sanjay Raut to tackle her however that boomeranged at them very badly.

Balasaheb Thackeray constructed ties with the movie trade, on the identical time, dominated with an iron fist, which meant going towards the Sena would harm their enterprise. He has a private equation with a number of Bollywood stars; Uddhav Thackeray didn’t accomplish that after he took over the reins of the social gathering. He moved away from road politics in a bid to venture the Shiv Sena in a unique gentle. However, Raj Thackeray (who moved out of the Sena to type the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena) inherited his uncle’s manner of functioning. Due to this fact, in 2010, Karan Johar and Shah Rukh Khan went to Raj (once they confronted an issue with their film’s launch) and never Matoshree, though Bal Thackeray was alive then. By some means, Uddhav Thackeray couldn’t match his father, and his Son proved to be even worse of all. In 2016, Johar additionally needed to meet Raj Thackeray after the latter’s social gathering objected to the discharge of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, which had Pakistani actor Fawad Khan as one of many main actors. Raj maintained an affinity with Bollywood however precisely like his Uncle Balasaheb, he stored that deterrence too. If Uddhav Thackeray constructed a rapport with the movie trade, it could have helped him throughout this “political gimmick”. Movie’s economics modified the trade and biggies wanted much less safety from political events. Now, they earn more money from abroad rights and different issues than from right here [the box office), so they really don’t need any politicians for their safety. The Sena always picked issues of Marathi culture and the common man with the film industry. It was the cultural protector, but this has turned into a hardcore political battle. Political observers said this is the first time a Bollywood actor has taken the fight with the ruling Shiv Sena, albeit with the backing of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), to the Centre. The recent war of words is a new type of a clash, the one the Sena is not used to.

The party’s first skirmish with the Hindi film industry came early on after the Sena was founded in 1966. In 1971, Marathi actor Krishna Kondke, popularly known as Dada Kondke, turned to Bal Thackeray for help after the owner of Kohinoor cinema did not screen his movie, Songadya, despite booking it three weeks in advance. Instead, the cinema hall screened Dev Anand’s Tere Mere Sapne. Angry Shiv Sainiks protested outside the cinema hall after it replaced the Marathi film with Anand’s film produced under the Navketan banner. Back then, Sena’s primary agenda was ‘Marathi manoos’.
Well, that was the equation between old generations, now in the new age, the Thackeray’s took an active part in state politics. And the actors are far more successful and prosperous than the Matoshri residents. Above all, it’s BJP, the party that has protected big and successful Bollywood actors keeping them close.
Kangana and her sister Rangoli are staunch supporters of BJP; they have time and again been in news for their opinions and pulling other actors and actresses into it. Whether it is her controversy surrounding Manikarnika or her personal life issues with Hrithik Roshan, Adhyayan Suman, and Aditya Pancholi. Surely she doesn’t share a good rapport with other co-stars. Kangana Ranaut started her journey from a small town in Himachal Pradesh and now she is on the list of top actresses of Bollywood She is also one of the youngest actors to have won the prestigious National award at the age of 22. She is also one of the most controversial, talented, and versatile actors of the B-town. She showed fake sympathy over Sushant Singh Rajput’s death and remained in the limelight for a long stint. Most of the time, she creates unnecessary controversy by taking all names that she is revengeful about. Only Urmila Matondkar not only gave her a befitting reply but shamed her for her acts. Perhaps this is the reason Shiv Sena has approached her. They need one firebrand female speaker who can tackle trolls like Kangana. Meanwhile, there are chances that BJP can rake her marriage as Love-Jihad, which will benefit Shiv Sena to gain Muslim votes. In Maha Vikas Aghadi, Shiv Sena can keep the upper hand only if they manage to gain more votes than the other two. Muslim votes are important for Shiv Sena because BJP can eat their Hindu votes. Urmila joining Shiv Sena has multiple motives.
