In 2019, Matondkar was with the Congress but later quit the grand old party, citing “petty in-house politics.”

Matondkar, who left the Congress in September 2019, joined the party within the presence of Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, about five months after the BJP lost the election to Gopal Shetty on the North Mumbai Lok Sabha seat.
For this she had reached Matoshri, Thackeray’s residence in Bandra. Shiv Sena sources said that the party has sent Matondkar from Governor Kota to Governor BS Koshyari for nomination to the legislature. The actress also confirmed the nomination for nomination to the legislature. She said that she aspires to figure for the difficulty of girls in her political life.
