The couple's car collided with other vehicles and a camper van, according to a report from Free Press Journal.

The collision reportedly occurred when several high-performance vehicles, including a Lamborghini and a Ferrari, tried to overtake the camper van simultaneously.

The van was overturned on a rural road in Sardinia.

Unfortunately, the Ferrari caught fire, resulting in the loss of the lives of the passengers inside.

They have been identified as Melissa Krautli, 63, and Markus Krautli, 67, from Switzerland, the news portal reported.

Meanwhile, Joshi said they were 'fine'.

She told The Free Press Journal, "Vikas and I are in Italy. We met with an accident here (multiple-car collision)... With god's grace, we both are absolutely fine."

Joshi is best remembered for her performance in the 2004-released movie Swades.

The movie featured Shah Rukh Khan and Joshi in the lead roles.

She married Vikas Oberoi, a promoter of Oberoi Construction, in 2005.

She has mostly stayed away from movies since then.
