Charu Khandal was critically injured after a car rammed into her autorickshaw in Mumbai

Shahrukh Khan Wednesday paid a visit to RA.One animator Charu Khandal at the Kokilaben Ambani Hospital where she is battling for life after an accident. Actor-producer Shahrukh who was busy shooting in London for Yash Raj Films’ next untitled film, landed in Mumbai on Tuesday. He had said at the airport about Charu, “It’s very unfortunate. I have been in touch with the office. I will go and take a look at her. I will pray that Allah makes her all right soon.” The actor visited Charu at the hospital and also met her family members. He spent around 35 to 40 minutes in the hospital, but didn’t speak to the press waiting outside.

Charu met with an accident March 25. A speeding car, with an allegedly drunk driver at the wheel, rammed into the autorickshaw in which she was travelling with her sister and a friend. The 26-year-old suffered multiple fractures and injuries to her spinal cord in the accident early Sunday and went into a coma. She is likely to undergo surgery today.
