Bengaluru: National award-winning Kannada actor Sanchari Vijay, who sustained injuries in a road accident, succumbed at a private hospital here on Monday, 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.
