Mahima Chaudhary

The actress was at the peak of her career when she met with a near-fatal accident. During the accident, 67 pieces of glass hit her face. Due to the gruesome accident, Mahima had to undergo a facial surgery. During her appearance on Her Story season 1, she told Bollywood Bubble, “It was the last day of the shoot in Banglore, and I was going to the school where the shoot was. It was early morning, normally you get staff to be in the car ahead of you or behind you. I was ready at 5.30 am and I was supposed to be there at 7 am. I told my staff to leave before me, otherwise, people will think I’m not ready. But, my mother asked ‘Why can’t you go if you’re ready?’ Then I sat in the car and left, but by that time, my staff had already left.

She continued, “A doodh wala truck (milk truck) was coming from the wrong side, we were going roundabout. So, the truck came and smashed my car in the roundabout. The truck came and rammed into me, so, the glass came like bullets and splinters into my face all over. The pieces of glass did not hit me anywhere else, I did not break my bones. It was only my face.
