Ra One animator Charu Khandal in critical condition

Charu Khandal, the brain behind the National Award winning special effects in Shahrukh Khan’s Ra One, is battling for her life at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital in Mumbai.

The 28 year old animator had thrown a party for her family and friends to celebrate the National Award win.  But the night ended on a tragic note. She is now in critical condition and the doctors say she’ll be permanently crippled even if she does survive.

The unfortunate accident happened when Charu was returning back in an auto-rickshaw after dinner at 1 am. She was with her sister Ritu and a close friend Goyal, when a speeding Honda City rammed into the rickshaw in Oshiwara, Mumbai. The driver of the car Manoj Gautam was arrested for apparently drinking and driving. He was later released after paying a bail amount of Rs 5000.

Charu Khandal has multiple fractures in her head, ribs, spine, neck and legs. Goyal who was also in coma has now regained consciousness, but is still undergoing treatment.
