The fire, which was extinguished after five hours using eight fire engines, five water jetties and other equipment, claimed the life of a 32-year-old, according to a report. Meanwhile, another person was injured in the fire.

Civilian officials told PTI that Manish Devashi, who was injured in the fire, was pronounced dead at civilian-run Cooper Hospital. Ashok Dubey, secretary general of the Federation of Western India Cine Employees, said a person who was doing lighting work on Luv Ranjan’s film sets also suffered minor injuries.

The fire started in a temporary pandal, where some wooden objects were stored. However, the cause of the fire is not yet clear. Meanwhile, Ashok Dubey claimed that the contractor who built these sets was the same person who built the movie set in Bangur Nagar, which caught fire a year and a half ago.

He said: “Fires continue to break out (on film sets) quite often and we don’t understand on what basis the municipal company gives permission to build sets. Fire safety rules must be followed.”

Film producer Boney Kapoor, who is making his acting debut with the film Luv Ranjan, had revealed to Bombay Times on Friday that only light work was going on on the set when the fire broke out, and that they were expected to start filming on Saturday. . A report in Etimes also said that Dharmendra’s grandson and Sunny Deol’s youngest son, Rajveer, who is preparing to make his Bollywood debut in a Rajshri Productions film, was filming when the fire broke out on the film set.
