Overjoyed with the news of her discharge from hospital, her fans and friends welcomed her back home. Chhapaak actor Vikrant Massey wrote, "So happy to see you back!" Saquib Saleem posted, "Sending you all the love ma'am." Filmmaker Onir commented, "Glad that you are doing better and back home. Much love." "Best news of today Shabanaji," wrote singer Rekha Bharadwaj.
Last month, Shabana was heading towards Pune, when her car rammed into a truck on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway. Her husband Javed Akhtar, who was travelling in a different car when the accident occurred, rushed her and the injured driver to the MGM hospital in Navi Mumbai. They were later shifted to the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital the same day.
An FIR has been filed against the driver for rash and negligent driving. However, the cops confirmed that the sections under which the driver is booked are bailable and he is not required to be arrested and was merely issued a notice.
