I thank her for joining the party and I welcome her, said Union minister Ramdas Athawale
She joined the party in the presence of party chief and Union minister Ramdas Athawale.
The actor was appointed vice president of the women's wing of the party.

He also claimed Kashyap would be arrested soon. The filmmaker has continuously denied the allegations levelled by the actor.
"I told her RPI(A) is Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar's party. It helps all sections of society, be it Dalits, Adivasis, OBCs, villagers, slum dwellers. The RPI will get a good face if you join the party. After I discussed this with her, she was ready to join the party," Athawale said.
