A stream of visitors from the film fraternity who visited Shabana Azmi at the Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital had to return without meeting the injured actress. Explains her husband poet-writer-thinker Javed Akhtar, She is in the ICU and shes not allowed visitors. But she should be out of the ICU by Tuesday. She is responding very well to the treatment. Providentially, there were no internal injuries. But her face is badly bruised. When I draw attention to the insensitivity displayed by a section of the media in publishing pictures of Shabana after the accident Javed Saab corrects me, Its not the media. They were passerby taking pictures of her. On a more positive note the nation, and that includes the PM Narendra Modiji, has been praying for Shabanas quick recovery. I am thankful to everyone who has stood by us during this sudden setback. Shabana is strong. She has fought her way out of the injury, says Javed Saab, ever-proud of his better-half.

Directed by Debatma Mandal and produced by Krasnaya Corporation LLP and Horse Films LLP, the film is currently under production and scheduled for a March 2020 release. The untitled tech horror film is a love triangle between Suhani (Hina Khan), Amar (Kushal Tandon) and Riddhi (Aditi Arya). Things get ugly and scary when Suhani realizes that she is about to lose the man of her dreams Amar to her flat-mate Riddhi. Suhani will do anything to make it right, even if it is installing an app off the deep web that grants your darkest wishes. Will she succeed or get trapped in her own wrong doing? The film unravels that through its course. Sharing her thoughts, actor Hina Khan said, It was a nail-biting script and I knew I wanted to play the character from the word go. The script had me hooked from start to finish and in order for me to make full justice to the role, I will have to tune into a different mind space to get under the skin of this character. Looking forward to working with a fantastic cast as well as ZEE5 and while I am excited, I am also nervous. Looking forward to this project, Kushal Tandon said, Tech horror is an extremely interesting genre and I am thankful that I got a chance to work with ZEE5 on this film. We have had extensive narration sessions and that has made me question on how technology can get the better of us! The script is well layered and every character has demons which will come alive as the film progresses. The film just went on floors and is set in uptown Mumbai.

Its insensitive & ghastly. The movie wasnt about you & your make up. It was about a woman scarred for life.And victims like her,whose marks cant be wiped off,unlike your make up.

She proved that it was merely makeup for her & she clearly doesnt understand the depth of what survivors go through. x (@krownnist) https://twitter.com/krownnist/status/1218521565094006785?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw January 18, 2020 Im appalled at Deepika Padukones Tiktok challenge on the Chhapaak acid survivor look. It is like making a movie on the Holocaust and tattooing numbers on your hand as promotion.
