Mumbai: Expressing delight over her mother Hema Malini returning home days after the accident in Rajasthan's Dausa district, actress Esha Deol said that the best medical team would look after her.

"My mother Hema ji is back home and I am glad she is back home. Right now, she is a bit too exhausted. It was a bad accident. She definitely will talk to the media, but give her a couple of days. Definitely she will recover. As of now, I have just come to say that my mother is fine. She went through a surgery and has got stitches on her forehead, lip and nose, but she will be fine," Esha told the media here.


"We all are in shock that something like this could happen. It could happen to anyone. So, she has very clearly told us that even if you are sitting on the backseat and going on the highway, wear your seat belt because she was not wearing her seat belt," she added.

The actress also expressed her heartfelt condolences to the family members of the minor girl, who was killed after Malini's Mercedes collided with another car on Thursday.

"It is very unfortunate that they lost a family member. Our prayer to them and it’s very unfortunate. The whole accident is very unfortunate. My mother will help the families of victims. She is doing this not because she is a neta (leader) but because she is a good human being as well," she said.

The accident, which occurred near Jaipur, left the girl child dead and three others injured.

Malini's driver, who was arrested in connection with the accident, was later granted bail.
