The actor-turned-politician is at the back of the BJP’s two-time MP by means of round 31,457 votes.
Shetty has been a sitting MP from Mumbai North for the previous two phrases and enjoys a sizeable recognition within the area regardless of some serious cases of land-grabbing.
Regardless of Shetty’s mass enchantment, Matondkar put out a tricky struggle, going aggressively after the BJP’s divisive politics.
“Anything else you are saying is met with a ‘move to Pakistan, move to Pakistan’. What’s going on? Persons are getting into properties and bashing others up,” she had told this writer after her candidacy was once introduced, in an obvious connection with the Muslim circle of relatives in Gurgaon who had been attacked by means of sword-wielding Hindu goons.
Matondkar, who made her debut as a kid actor in 1980, is very best recognized for motion pictures reminiscent of Ram Gopal Varma’s Rangeela, Satya, Kaun and Bhoot, and Sriram Raghavan’s neo-noir mystery Ek Haseena Thi.
However the confident performer, who was once an interloper within the business, by no means relatively were given her due in clique-driven Bollywood.
