Whether she realises it or not, Urmila Matondkar has changed. As she starts campaigning, she donnes a different persona. There are no tall promises when she goes out seeking votes, just an effort to make a bond with everyone she meets.
The Mumbai North seat is considered to be a BJP stronghold. In the 2014 Lok Sabha polls, BJP’s sitting MP Gopal Shetty, who is seeking a second consecutive term, had defeated Congress’ Sanjay Nirupam by over 4.46 lakh votes.
The Mumbai North constituency — comprising Malad West, Kandivali East, Charkop, Magathane, Borivali and Dahisar — was initially offered to Congress leader and former MP from the seat Sanjay Nirupam, who declined.
After a decade, Urmila Matondkar has yet again slipped into her dancing shoes for Irrfan Khan's upcoming film Blackmail. Since its release, the Amit Trivedi composition "Bewafa Beauty" has been receiving mixed reviews.
Urmila Matondkar, the “Chamma Chamma” girl turns to a "Bewafa Beauty" in the new Blackmail song which goes by the same name. But this typical Bollywood item number fails to live up to the benchmark the yesteryear actress had set for herself.
Urmila checked all the boxes for being recognised as the most spirited leading lady of the bygone era. She was a terrific actor, an even better dancer and a diva. She was a head turner even when it came to her fashion statements.
Bollywood's leading ladies like their male counterparts are open to experimenting with the roles onscreen. Gone are the days when Bollywood beauties hesitated in portraying negative or dark roles on big screen. In the past Priyanka Chopra, Kajol, Katrina Kaif, Vidya Balan and many other actresses have done negative roles in their career.
