National award-winning Kannada actor Sanchari Vijay, who sustained injuries in a road accident, succumbed at a private hospital on Monday, the sources said. "He is brain dead and his family has to decide whether they can donate his organs," a doctor attending on the actor told reporters. The actor's motorcycle skidded on Saturday night at JP Nagar in the city and resulted in him sustaining serious head injuries.
Condoling Vijay's death, Chief Minister B S Yediyurappa said he was deeply pained to know about it and expressed his sorrow. Fans took to social media and condoled his shocking demise. On one hand, where many praised his performances and nature, others asked what's wrong with the date June 14 as Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput passed away on the same day last year.
