He again played Chhatrapati Shivaji in the show Chhatrapati Sambhaji, which was telecasted on Marathi TV in 2017. He worked in the serial Swarajyarakshak Sambhaji on Zee Marathi during the same year. In 2019, he worked in the television show Swarajya Janani Jijamata which was telecasted on the Sony Marathi.
In 2019, Amol Kolhe entered politics and contested the general elections of India on the ticket of the Nationalist Congress Party from the Shirur constituency of Maharashtra.

In January 2022, Amol Kolhe attracted controversy when it was announced in media that he portrayed Nathuram Godse in the movie “Why I Killed Gandhi.” He was criticised in media by the NCP leader and minister Jitendra Awhad and Congress’ state unit president Nana Patole for his character in the movie. In an interview with a media reporter, Amol Kolhe said that he began working in the film in 2017, but, due to some reasons, the movie was postponed. He continued by saying that he was not involved in active politics in 2017. He said,
I worked in this movie in 2017. Due to various reasons, the release was delayed. When I played this role, I was not in active politics. I never supported nor will support Godse’s ideology in my personal life. As an actor, I just perform.”
Soon, NCP Chief Sharad Pawar came forward in support of Amol Kolhe and his character in the film. Sharad Pawar stated in a conversation with a media house that Amol portrayed the role of Godse merely as an actor. He further added that playing Ravana and Aurangzeb characters in the films did not state that the actor was the follower of their ideologies. He said,
We should all look at Kolhe’s role in the movie as an actor. In Richard Attenborough’s “Gandhi”, the role of Godse was played by an actor. Even in Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s movie, some actors played the role of Aurangzeb. They are just actors.”
