We were shocked yesterday when we heard that popular Bengali star Vikram Chatterjee met with a major car accident in Kolkatta. The actor was driving the car with friend and popular model, Sonika Chauhan by his side. Reports suggested that Vikram lost control and rammed the car into a shop. While Sonika died on the spot due to her injuries, Vikram survived. He was taken to the emergency room and after receiving some first aid he was discharged. But before he could step a foot outside the hospital, the actor fell unconscious and was admitted to the ICU immediately. After nearly 24 hours at the hospital, staff members have informed the media that Vikram is now out of danger and is recovering well. However, there is no word yet on what exactly happened to him in the first place.
There is also no word on why or how the accident took place. An investigation will be started once the actor recovers, but for now we have no clue what exactly transpired. DNA After Hrs, however, reported that Vikram was speeding when he lost control of the car. The vehicle then rammed into a shop, turned 180 degrees and then ramped up the pavement. The bystanders rushed the two occupants - Sonika and Vikram to the hospital nearby, but the model was pronounced dead on arrival.

We now hope that Vikram recovers soon and sheds some light on what exactly happened in the crucial seconds before the accident. Meanwhile, the film industry is mourning the loss of Sonika Chauhan. Apart from being a popular model in Mumbai, she was also a prime time TV host. From Arindam Sil to Nusrat Jahan, several celebrities remembered her for her lively attitude and dedication towards her work.
