Kapil Sharma is in the news for all the wrong reasons. First it was him being thrown out of the Yash Raj Camp, then his spat with Kamaal Rashid Khan on Twitter and now a building in Andheri, Mumbai, in which his edit studio is located, catching first. Well things are just not going right for him.
According to reports the fire broke out today morning (July 18, 2014) at about 09:30 am and the the news reached Preeti Simoes, Creative Director of Comedy Nights With Kapil at around 11:00 am.
Says Preeti, “Our edit room is on the sixth floor of the building. Though fire fighters have told us that the fire won’t reach our floor and that it will be controlled before that, we are worried as all our footage is there. We have a big weekend with Virat Kohli and the Pathan brothers (Irfan and Yusuf) episode and the master of the episode should have been out today. My major concern is that the footage of this episode isn’t damaged. We will know the exact status in a few hours. I received the call informing me about the fire at around 11:oo am. The tape, which has Virat Kohli’s episode, is in the studio.”
Preeti then took on to Twitter and wrote, “The building Lotus Business Park, where we edit Comedy Nights With Kapil caught fire. All our footage is on the sixth floor. Really worried. Also shot with Salim – Suleman. God please don’t let our hard work go waste. Please God stop this fire.”
The fire initially broke out on the twenty first floor of the Lotus Building and later started spreading. Firefighters were immediately rushed to the spot to set the flame to rest.
“We got a call at around 11:00 am that a fire has broken out in the commercial building. We initially thought it was a grade one fire and sent four fire tankers to the spot. The fire was then upgraded to grade two and we deployed twelve fire engines and nine water tankers at the site,” said a fire brigade official.
Though there has been no report of any civilian casualties, one firefighter had reportedly died and many are severely injured in the incident.
