Shabana Azmi Will be Out of ICU Says Husband Javed Akhtar

Shabana Azmi was involved in a horrific accident and had to be admitted to the ICU

A stream visitors  from the  film fraternity who visited Shabana Azmi at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital had to return without meeting the injured actress. Explains her husband  poet-writer-thinker  Javed Akhtar, “She is in  the ICU and she’s not allowed  visitors. But she should be out  of  the  ICU  by Tuesday. She is responding very well to the treatment. Providentially, there were no internal injuries. But her face is  badly bruised.”

When I draw attention to the insensitivity displayed by a  section  of the  media in  publishing pictures of Shabana  after  the accident Javed Saab  corrects me , “It’s not the  media. They  were passers-by taking pictures  of  her.” On a  more positive note, the nation, and that  includes  the  PM Narendra Modiji, has been praying for Shabana’s quick recovery. “I am thankful to everyone who has stood by us during this  sudden setback. Shabana is strong. She has fought her way  out of  the injury,” says  Javed Saab, ever-proud of his better-half. A Times of India reported quoted the executive director and CEO of the hospital Dr Santosh Shetty saying that the condition of the acclaimed actress is ‘stable.

Shabana Azmi was greviously injured a couple of days ago when her car rammed into a truck on the Mumbai-Pune expressway. She had to be admitted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai. It has been reported that an FIR (First Information Report) was filed against the driver who was driving the car and he had been booked for rash and negligent driving.
