One person died in a fire that broke out at a film set in Mumbai’s Andheri West
One person was killed when a massive fire engulfed an open air film studio set near the Andheri Sports Complex on Friday.
The blaze was noticed around 4.30 p.m. in the Chitrakoot Studio, spread across over 5,000 square feet where 2 decorative film shooting sets were erected, and thick clouds of smoke were seen billowing out.
Following an alert from the NDRF, the Mumbai Fire Brigade and other rescue agencies rushed to spot with around 10 fire tenders to battle the conflagration.
Meanwhile, the Federation of Western India Cine Employees (FWICE) spokesperson Shashikant Singh said that the victim was reportedly a lightman working on the pre-lighting work on the dual sets, erected for a Rajshri Productions film and another movie by filmmaker Luv Ranjan.
