Mumbai: Actors like Swara Bhasker and Nora Fatehi are praying for the speedy recovery of veteran actress Shabana Azmi, who was grievously injured in a road accident involving her car and a truck near Khalapur toll-plaza on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway.
She was rushed to the Mahatma Gandhi Mission Medical College & Hospital (MGM-MCH) in Navi Mumbai for treatment, and was later shifted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH) in Andheri for further medicare, a top hospital official said.
“We have taken x-rays, a CT scan, ultrasound and conducted other tests on her. She has suffered injuries to her head, neck and cervical spine, face and right eye. She was conscious and speaking and her vital parameters were normal. There are no abdominal injuries,” MGM-MCH Medical Superintendent (Lt.Gen.) K.R. Salgotra told IANS.
He said the actor was under treatment at the hospital for a few hours before her family members requested that they wanted to shift her to KDAH, so she was given a discharge.
