Shabana Azmi is Doing Fine After Shocking Accident, Says Husband Javed Akhtar
Shabana Azmi was involved in a horrific accident yesterday that shocked her family and friends
A day after the ghastly road accident which left her automobile smashed, Shabana Azmi was doing fine at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai. On Sunday, all essential medical tests were done on the injured actress and there were no seeming complications.
When I asked Javed Akhtar about his better-half’s health on Sunday morning he replied, “Don’t worry. She is in the ICU but all the catscan reports are positive. It seems there’s no serious harm done.”

Shabana Azmi was involved in a horrific accident when her car rammed into a truck near the Khalapur Toll plaza on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. She was rushed initially to the Mahatma Gandhi Mission Medical College & Hospital, Navi Mumbai for treatment.
Meanwhile, the police has filed an FIR against the driver of Shabana Azmi’s vehicle for rash driving. Says a source very close to the Azmis and Akhtars, “Just a few days earlier we were all celebrating Javed Saab’s 75th birthday. Now, this catastrophe has stuck. Though it could have been much worse. According to sources, Shabana had a providential escape from death. The intensity of the hit could have hurled her out of the speeding vehicle. Luckily that didn’t happen. But it would take her more than a month to recover.
We wish the actress a speedy recovery.
