Actor turned politician Urmila Matondkar recently opened up on the constant attack of trolls on her husband Mohsin Akhtar and his family. She also talked about her Wikipedia page being vandalised by miscreants, who changed her parents' name on it.
In a conversation with Mojo Story, Urmila said that she was not prepared for the vicious trolling of Mohsin and his family. "He was called a terrorist, a Pakistani. I mean, there is a limit to where it should go... They have even infiltrated my Wikipedia page and they have gone and put my mother's name as Rukhsana Ahmed and my father's name as Shivinder Singh, two human beings who must be living somewhere in India but I don't know of. My father's name is Shrikant Matondkar and my mother's name is Sunita Matondkar," she said.
"To top it all, my husband is not only a Muslim but a Kashmiri Muslim. We both follow our religions in an equally staunch way. That gave them a bigger platform to troll me and constantly target him and his family. It was very unfortunate," she added.
Urmila on joining politics
Urmila recently joined political party Shiv Sena and has been in the news because of her war of words with Kangana Ranaut.
Urmila and Mohsin got married in a private ceremony in March 2016. Designer Manish Malhotra, at whose niece's wedding the couple first met, was the only celebrity guest at the wedding.
Urmila started her career as a child artiste and worked in films such as Kalyug and Masoom before making her debut in a leading role with Narsimha in 1991. She is known for films such as Rangeela, Judaai, Satya, Kaun, Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya, Bhoot and Ek Hasina Thi.
