Finally, there is some good news on Shabana Azmi’s health update, after she met with a deadly car accident on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway in Maharashtra's Raigad district on Saturday, January 18, 2020.
Her husband and lyricist Javed Akhtar has informed that Shabana ji is all set to return back home. “Shabana is completely recovered now. She has been fully healed for some time now. But the doctors decided to keep her under observation in hospital for a few days extra and I completely agreed with them. She is now ready to return home. We are bringing her home on Friday morning” he told Bollywood Hungama.
For the uninitiated, Shabana Azmi was returning from Javed Akhtar’s birthday bash, which was held on January 17, 2020, when she met with the road accident. The incident took place around 3.30 pm near Khalapur, over 60 km from Mumbai, when the car in which she was traveling along with her husband and noted veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar, rammed into a truck and got crushed, said Raigad Superintendent of Police Anil Paraskar.
She was severely injured and was rushed to the nearby hospital from the accident spot, the MGM hospital in Navi Mumbai. Later, she was shifted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital.
Javed ji added: “It could have been a lot worse. I’d say Shabana had a miraculous escape.”
Well, that’s some great news and we wish Shabana Ji a speedy recovery.
