After 19 days of fight, Actress Aindrila Sharma breathed her last on Sunday morning. She was 25. According to the hospital, she suffered 10 cardiac arrests consecutively in the wee hours of Sunday. Earlier on Saturday, she had a mild cardiac arrest which was tackled promptly by the doctors. However, after the multiple attacks post-midnight, her condition became very critical. Later, she passed away at around 1 pm. The actress is survived by his father Dr Uttam Sharma, mother Shikha Sharma, and sister Dr Aishwarya Sharma. Her boyfriend, actor Sabyasachi Chowdhury, stood by her every moment.  

Aindrila – a cancer survivor – suffered a major brain stroke on November 1. After she was rushed to the hospital, she underwent brain surgery to remove the clots. She went into ventilation since then. Initially, certain improvements were noticed in her body. However, since the beginning of the last week, her health started deteriorating. Fresh blood clots were found in her brain. On Wednesday, she suffered from a series of cardiac arrests and her condition deteriorated further. 

On a press note, the hospital stated, “Ms Aindrila Sharma was brought to Emergency of Narayana Superspeciality Hospital on 01/11/2022 afternoon in a comatose condition. She was a known patient of Ewing's sarcomat treated with surgery and chemoradiation earlier. She was immediately intubated and put on a ventilator. Her CT scan of the brain showed a massive hemorrhage inside the left half of the brain. She was immediately shifted to the operation theatre and our Neurosurgeon performed a critical surgery to remove the brain hemorrhage. The biopsy showed she was having brain metastases from Ewing's sarcoma. Metastatic Ewing's sarcoma is an extremely fatal disease with a very poor prognosis. She was seen by a combined team of Neurosurgeons, Neurologists, Critical Care specialists, Infectious disease specialists, Medical Oncologists, Radiologists and Radiation Oncologists. The entire medical team worked tirelessly to make her recover. Though still on a ventilator she was showing signs of recovery after surgery. 10 days after the surgery she developed a massive stroke in the left side of her brain. Later she developed a stroke on the right side of her brain also. The probable cause of these strokes seems the underlying malignancy. Her consciousness level dropped and ventilator support had to be increased. Day in and day out our doctors tried their best to treat her. We also gladly accepted the family's request for consultation by doctors from other hospitals so as to leave no stone unturned in our effort to treat her. She remained critical and had episodes of cardiac arrests which were reverted by prompt intervention by our specialist doctors. Her family also supported us in these trying times with their full cooperation and trust in our hospital and treating doctors. But, unfortunately despite our best efforts, she suffered Cardiac arrests today and she succumbed to this dreaded disease and has been declared dead today on 20.11.22 at 12.59 pm. We deeply regret the loss and extend our full support to her family and friends in such troubled times.”

Aindrila debuted on television in 2017 with a serial, Jhumur. She became a popular name after her work in Jiyon Kathi in which she played the character of Tuli. After she was diagnosed with cancer, she took a break from acting. Later, she made a comeback and appeared in multiple serials and web series, including, Bhagar. Known to be a happy and bubbly girl, her recent ailment shook the Bengali film industry. From Anik Dutta to Rituparna Sengupta, Parambrata Chatterjee, and several others – the fraternity prayed for her recovery. Her boyfriend actor Sabyasachi Chowdhury kept updating her on her health on social media. However, he too deleted all his posts related to Aindrila’s health on Saturday.
