Many Bollywood celebrities came to meet the veteran actress including Anil Ambani, Sunita Kapoor, Honey Irani, Shibani Dandekar, Boney Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal, Adhuna Bhabani, Tabu, Farah Khan, and others.
Boney Kapoor was spotted at the hospital on Sunday morning, and he gave an update on Shabana Azmi's health to the media. He said that there is nothing alarming. 'She’s sedated as there is some pain but everything is fine. Except Javed saab, Baba (Azmi, the actress’s brother), and Tanvi (Azmi, sister-inlaw) nobody is allowed into the ICU.'
He also added that he heard Javed Akhtar tell a visitor, "Shabanaji is coherent, talking normally, recognising people. For now, she is under observation and the doctors are making sure there is no internal injury and that potential dangers are ruled out. She is a fighter and will come out of it."
