“There is good news. All tests  and medical reports  including  the MRI are  positive.  No  serious harm was done. We we can all breathe  a sigh  of relief,” says  Javed. Shabana  should be  home in a couple of days.

A few days ago, Shabana Azmi had met with a serious accident on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway when her car rammed into a truck. Her car driver was then arrested for rash and negligent driving.
