It may be mentioned that Shabana was injured on January 18 in a road accident involving her UV and a truck near Khalapur toll plaza on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. The actress was initially rushed to the Mahatma Gandhi Mission Medical College and Hospital (MGM-MCH) at Kamothe, Navi Mumbai but shifted to Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Andheri the same evening.
Her husband, veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar, was also in the vehicle but he escaped unhurt.
Among those who rejoiced Shabana’s homecoming was her “Chalk N Duster” co-star Richa Chadha. “We love you! Happy to hear you’re better… See you soon and a big hug”, while Vikrant Massey posted: “So happy to see you back!” Richa tweeted.
On the film front, Shabana will be in Faraz Arif Ansari’s “Sheer Qorma”, which also stars Divya Dutta and Swara Bhasker.
