Mumbai: A major fire gutted the Cinevista studio at Gandhi Nagar Junction in Mumbai’s Kanjurmarg area on Saturday evening but no casualties were reported.
According to the BMC Disaster Control, the fire erupted in the studio around 8pm and at least 12 fire tenders were rushed to the spot. The fire was confined to a 3,000 square feet ground plus first floor area of the studio where shootings are usually held.
The blaze came just days after a massive blaze claimed the lives of 14 people in the Kamala Mills compound, and another one in Andheri that claimed the lives of four people.
The official said that shooting for two TV serials was underway in the studio and there were some people inside, but they were quickly evacuated. Located in a five acre property, the studio has over 30 shooting locations.
The studio is owned by Prem Kishen, son of erstwhile actor Premnath. Electric wiring, lights and other studio equipment were gutted in the blaze, the cause of which is not known.
Last September, a shooting floor in the famous R.K.Studios, Chembur had been reduced to ashes along with some priceless memorabilia belonging to Bollywood's Kapoor family.
