Mumbai: Actor-turned-politician Hema Malini on Saturday had a narrow escape as two vehicles in her cavalcade collided with each other under Highway police station area here, police said.
“MP Hema Malini is safe,” SP City, Mukul Dwivedi said.
The accident took place when the BJP MP was going to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Veterinary University and Gau Anusandhan Kendra to inaugurate a function.
“One of the vehicles in the MP’s cavalcade suddenly applied the brakes, halting the movement of the other vehicles. Meanwhile, a speeding car entered into the fleet and brushed past the vehicle carrying the MP,” Sanjai Govil, BJP leader, said.
The stray vehicle fled the spot thereafter, he added.
The Bollywood actor had met with an accident in Rajasthan last year, in which a four-year-old girl was killed and five others were injured, including Hema Malini.
