Veteran Bollywood actress and BJP MP Hema Malini’s car met with an accident on Thursday when it rammed into an Alto carrying 4 occupants at Dausa near Jaipur and the injured actress was admitted in Fortis Hospital. Her daughter Esha Deol later visited her in the hospital, said early reports, while husband Dharmendra is yet to reach the place.
The police took the driver into custody for negligence and charged him under IPC Sections 304, 337 and 338 as one child in the Alto car was killed in the accident, while others are injured severely. Hema Malini had a head injury but safe, said early reports.
Local police confirmed the accident and said, “It happened in Dausa. The exact location can only be told by the employees. Now, the MP has been brought here (Jaipur) for treatment.”
Of late, several Bollywood actors and actresses were involved in car accidents. While Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan recently escaped from an Audi car that was rammed into by a car from behind with minor injuries, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ fame Madhur Mittal too was also in hospital for one month with severe injuries.
Mittal was quick to pitch for campaign to wear seat belt in a car and it remains to be seen how Hema Malini sends her message across being MP as well. Otherwise, BJP lost its senior minister Gopinath Munde in accident last year.
