    Even as the members of the unit filming ‘Etakaaram.com’ were heaving a sigh of relief on their providential escape from the earthquake that devastated Nepal, a road accident claimed the life of Vijay, the choreographer for the movie, on Monday. After wrapping up four days of shooting in a place called Kokra in Nepal, the unit was said to be returning to Kathmandu when the Tata Safari van in which the unit was travelling met with an accident. Three others in the unit also suffered injuries, but death was instantaneous for Vijay, said Maharshi, one of the three heroes in the film who did not go to Nepal because his presence was not required in the schedule.
