The claim is False.
Newsmeter performed a Google Reverse Image Search of the viral picture, which directed us to a report published by The Indian Express on May 25, 2016. The report was titled 'Urmila Matondkar, hubby Mohsin Akhtar Mir enjoy a romantic dinner date'.
According to the report, actress Urmila Matondkar married Kashmir-based businessman Mohsin Akhtar Mir on March 3 in a quiet ceremony. Urmila's close friend and celebrity designer Manish Malhotra was the only person from Bollywood to attend the wedding.
According to a report by Jagran on March 06, 2016, Mohsin has appeared in the Bollywood film 'Luck by Chance'. Mohsin was in the role of Farhan's rival model in this film. Apart from this, he was seen in the lead role in the movie 'It's Man's World'. Mohsin was seen in the role of a male sex worker in this film directed by Saurabh Sen Gupta.
We then performed a keyword search to find if the actress is the niece of Mohan Bhagwat. There is no evidence that can prove any relationship even quite far between Urmila and Mohan Bhagwat.
It is therefore evident that the claim is misleading. There is no relationship between actress Urmila Matondkar and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat. The actress is not the niece of Mohan Bhagwat
