In an interview with Bollywood Hungama, Javed Akhtar shared details about her discharge and said, “Shabana is completely recovered now. She has been fully healed for some time now. But the doctors decided to keep her under observation in hospital for a few days extra and I completely agreed with them. She is now ready to return home. We are bringing her home on Friday morning.” Javed ji was thankful that she got away with minor injuries and said, “It could have been a lot worse. I’d say Shabana had a miraculous escape.”
