Urmila Matonddkar expressed concern for them and said that she does not even know if they are getting all their medicines on time.
Actress-turned-politician Urmila Matondkar, on Thurday, slammed the government for the security clamp-down in Jammu and Kashmir after Article 370 abrogation. The 45-year-old revealed that her husband, whose parents live in Kashmir, has not spoken to them for the last 22 days.

"The question is not only about abrogating Article 370. It was done in inhuman manner," said Matondkar.

While revealing that her father-in-law and mother-in-law are diabetic and patients of high blood pressure, she expressed concern for them and said that she does not even know if they are getting all their medicines on time.

In May this year, the 'Rangeela' actress contested Lok Sabha elections on a Congress ticket from Mumbai North constituency.
