On Saturday afternoon, actor Shabana Azmi was injured in an accident on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway in Maharashtra’s Raigad district, an official said.
Her Safari car crashed into a truck from the rear as both the vehicles were moving towards Mumbai.
The incident took place around 3:30 pm near Khalapur, over 60 km from Mumbai, when the car in which she was travelling rammed into a truck, said Raigad Superintendent of Police Anil Paraskar.
Shabana and the car’s driver were both rushed to MGM hospital in Navi Mumbai and are undergoing treatment, he said.
Javed Akhtar was also travelling with Shabana Azmi in the car. The couple was travelling towards Pune when their Tata Safari was hit by a truck. He was not injured in the accident.
Shabana recently celebrated the 75th birthday of her husband and veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar. The two were spotted in various parties hosted in honour of Javed’s special day.
