Though the fire was minor, it assumed significance because of the presence of several celebrities in the vicinity.

A source from Shah Rukh's production said, "Karan Johar, Farah Khan, Anuskha Sharma and Alia Bhatt were on the set when the fire broke out."

The source added, "There was a sudden blackout on the set while the celebs were shooting with Shah Rukh Khan. They were told that the generator outside had caught fire. The set was evacuated immediately. There was no major loss but it was scary as there were so many celebs on the set."

A officer at the Byculla Fire Control said, "We received the call at around 6.48pm and sent one fire engine and one tanker to the spot.”

“It was a minor breakout due to short circuit in the meter box hence the main switch was shut down first and the fire was doused immediately. There were no casualties whatsoever," he added.
