She Is a Fighter: Boney Kapoor on Shabana Azmi’s Recovery

Veteran actor Shabana Azmi met with a car accident on Mumbai-Pune Expressway on 18 January. She was subsequently moved to Kokilaben Dhirubai Ambani Hospital in Andheri for treatement.

Boney Kapoor, who visited Shabana Azmi in the hospital on Sunday, told Mumbai Mirror that Azmi is sedated but stable and that there is nothing “alarming” about her situation.

“Shabanaji is coherent, talking normally, recognising people. For now, she is under observsation and the doctors are making sure there is no internal injury and that potential dangers are ruled out. She is a fighter and will come out of it,” Kapoor told the publication.

Soon after the news of the incident broke out, wishes from politicians and celebrities started pouring in for her speedy recovery. Prime Minister Narendra Modi took to Twitter to say that the news is “distressing.”

Shashi Tharoor assured everyone that Azmi is out of danger as he has spoken to Javed Akhtar. He wrote on Twitter, “Spoke to Javed Akhtar. She has suffered some injuries &is being moved to a bigger hospital in Mumbai. Further scans will be required, but he has been assured she is out of danger. I have assured him of all our prayers & best wishes for her speedy recovery.”

Shraddha Kapoor requested the media to refrain from posting photos of the accident as it is distressing for family members.
