Achala Sachdev hurt in car mishap

Achala Sachdev
Veteran actress Achala Sachdev was involved in a car mishap on the Mumbai-Pune expressway on Saturday afternoon.

The accident occurred when she was en route to Mumbai for the shoot of the Star Plus daily Kavyanjali, in which she plays Bebe.

The octogenarian actress was travelling alone with her driver, and though the injuries she sustained are minor, she is in a state of shock and has been advised rest.

Lives alone

Incidentally, Sachdev is based in Pune and visits Mumbai only for shooting purposes. It is learnt that she lives alone and has a son, who is based in London.

When we called her on the mobile, it was her driver, Ibrahim, who took the call. "She has given her mobile to me and I am back in Mumbai. She has been admitted to a hospital in Pune," he claimed.


Ibrahim confirmed that the mishap had occurred due to a burst tyre. "She was not hurt, but it was extremely traumatic for her. She is in a state of shock. I had to call for an ambulance and she was taken to her family doctor, and later to hospital. The Balaji team was immediately informed about the incident."

The driver claims he received injuries on his chest and face, for which he is seeking treatment at a Jogeshwari hospital. Efforts to reach to Sachdev in Pune proved futile.

Sachdev, who has played the mother figure in several Bollywood films, switched over to the small screen with Kavyanjali. As Bebe in this daily, she plays Kavya's great grandmother.
