I am thankful to everyone who has stood by us during this sudden setback, says Javed.
A stream of visitors from the film fraternity who visited Shabana Azmi at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital had to return without meeting the injured actress.
Explains her husband poet-writer-thinker Javed Akhtar, “She is in the ICU and she’s not allowed visitors. But she should be out of the ICU by Tuesday . She is responding very well to the treatment. Providentially, there were no internal injuries though her face is badly bruised.”
Speaking on insensitivity displayed in publishing pictures of Shabana after the accident Akhtar says, “It’s not the media. They were passers-by taking pictures of her.”
On a more positive note, the nation and that includes the PM Narendra Modi, has been praying for Shabana’s quick recovery.
“I am thankful to everyone who has stood by us during this sudden setback. Shabana is strong. She has fought her way out of the injuries,” says Akhtar
