Bollywood star of yesteryear, Hema Malini, met the Good Samaritan who took her to hospital after her recent accident.
The BJP MP invited Dr Shiv Kumar Sharma of Dausa for dinner at her home in Mumbai.
She also wrote a letter thanking him for his timely assistance.
"You took me to safety and the most suitable hospital in Jaipur, without even thinking for a moment about the distance or any other possibilities," she said in the letter.
The accident occurred in Rajasthan last month when Hema Malini's Mercedes collided with a Maruti Alto.
A four year old girl travelling in the Alto was killed in the accident.
The 66-year-old actress subsequently criticized the girl's father, who was driving the Alto, for not following traffic rules.
She received flak from the Twitterati for her comments.
The star of Dreamgirl, Seeta Aur Geeta, Johnny Mera Naam and many other Bollywood hits suffered injuries to her face and was treated in a Jaipur hospital.
Here are some photos from the meeting between Hema Malini's family and Dr Sharma.
