Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar disappointed no one as she joined the Shiv Sena, solemnly tied a 'Shiv-Bandhan' and grabbed the bow and arrow to become the newest and most glamorous Shiv Sainik on Tuesday.

Shortly after her grand debut in the second party in her a two-year-old political career, the Marathi 'mulgi' made all statements that proved soothing music for Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and even the Shiv Sena-Nationalist Congress Party-Congress Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government.

For starters, the 46-year old "Masoom" girl took an indirect swipe at Kangana Ranaut by proclaiming: "I am a people-made star, not a media-made star. I am sure I will be a 'people-made' leader, too!"

"I am a Hindu by 'janma' and 'karma'. I have tremendous respect for the late Balasaheb Thackeray. Shiv Sena is a 'Hindutva' party. Hindutva implies it is all-inclusive, without any discrimination. I don't need to speak how much I believe in 'Hindutva', it's a personal matter," said Urmila, warming the cockles of the hearts of even hardcore Shiv Sainiks.

She countered by asking whether "any kind of discrimination or special treatment" was meted out to any section of the people under the one year of MVA, and generously lauded the manner in which Thackeray and the Shiv Sena-led government have "lived upto peoples' expectations".
