New Delhi:

The condition of veteran actor Shabana Azmi, who was injured in an accident on the Mumbai- Pune Expressway on Saturday afternoon, was "stable", the Mumbai hospital where she was admitted said.

Azmi was admitted at Kokilaben Ambani hospital in suburban Andheri after initial treatment at MGM Hospital in Navi Mumbai. "She is stable and under observation," said Dr Santosh Shetty, Executive Director and CEO of Ambani Hospital in a statement late in the evening.

The incident took place around 3.30 pm on Saturday 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.

Her husband and lyricist Javed Akhtar, who was also traveling with her, escaped unhurt. Their vehicle was hit by a truck while they were travelling from Pune to Mumbai.

The Raigad Police had issued an official statement regarding the accident. It read as "Shabana Azmi and her driver was injured in an accident near Khalapur on Pune-Mumbai Expressway. While they were driving from Pune to Mumbai their vehicle hit by a truck on the expressway. Javed Akhtar was also present in the car who is safe. Both the injured have been shifted to MGM Hospital."

The car driver was apparently trying to overtake another vehicle and rammed into the truck. The driver sustained minor injuries.
