A song sequence was being shot when one of the lights burst into flames. A source from the unit says, "There were around 600 people on the set and we were doing dance rehearsals on the stage. All of a sudden, a cluster came off from the roof of the backstage. Everyone panicked and started rushing out of the studio.”

“The set was evacuated immediately and the unit managed to save most equipment from being gutted. A crew member says, "There was no fire extinguisher on the sets and the fire brigade reached after half an hour. The shooting has stopped and we are waiting to assess the extent of damage," the source adds.

Varun's spokesperson says, "Remo and Varun helped evacuate the set. Nobody got hurt. There is a week of shoot left and it will resume soon."

While Remo told us "all is good and no one is hurt", dancer-actress Lauren Gottileb, who is part of the cast, says, "I hope our main stage where we are supposed to shoot the song is intact."
