The actress made her political debut in 2003. She has, in the past, campaigned for BJP candidates including yesteryear late actor Vinod Khanna, and formally joined the party in 2014. She was also the general secretary of the party in 2010. In the 2014 general elections for the Lok Sabha, Malini defeated the Mathura incumbent, Jayant Chaudhary (RLD) by 3,30,743 votes. She was then elected to the Lok Sabha.
As an actress, though, she was last seen on screen in Ek Thi Rani Aisi Bhi which was released last year. Over the years, she has made fewer presence on screen, with her daughter, Esha Deol, briefly acting in cinema too.
