In a recent interaction with Mumbai Mirror, Azmi talked about the same and revealed, “It’s a miracle I survived without breaking any bones.”
I have recovered 90 percent, but there is still some pain in my arms and palms because of the whiplash on my neck. Doctors tell me it will take another couple of months to heal. It’s a miracle I survived without breaking any bones. I’ve broken my shoulder, wrist, and foot in the past.- Shabana Azmi
