Mumbai: After Actor Shabana Azmi was injured in an accident on Saturday afternoon on the Mumbai-Pune Expressway in Maharashtra's Raigad district,Twitterati took to Twitter to harsh comments.
"Javed Akhtar was also present in the car, but he is safe," ANI quoted the police to say.
According to IANS, another unidentified woman is reported to be seriously hurt.
The incident took place around 3.30 pm near Khalapur, over 60 km from Mumbai, when the car in which she was traveling rammed into a truck, said Raigad Superintendent of Police Anil Paraskar.
Here's how Twitterati reacted to Shabana's car accident;
Earlier, around 100 eminent Muslim personalities including Shabana Azmi and Naseeruddin Shah had opposed the move of challenging the unanimous verdict of the Supreme Court in the decades-long Ayodhya dispute asserting that keeping the matter alive will not help the community.
Some even took to Twitter to say that " O Lord Rama, please forgive her mistakes and protect Shabana Azmi...No one is greater than Rama Lord!"
A Twitter user even went on to say " I'm waiting for people to suggest Amit Shah did it. Prayers for her though."
She was rushed to MGM hospital in Navi Mumbai and was undergoing treatment, the police said.
Highway police patrol teams have rushed to investigate the accident site.
Reportedly they were going to Khandala where they have a house towards Khalapur. Azmi was sitting behind the driver.
The incident comes just a day after Javed Akhtar celebrated his 75th birthday in Mumbai.
