A fire has broken out on the sets of Shah Rukh Khan-starrer ‘Zero’ in Mumbai Film City, on Thursday (November 29) news agency PTI reported.
The star was present on the set, when the incident took place but he has been escaped unhurt.
Five fire engines have reportedly been sent to the spot to control the blaze. The origin of the fire has not yet been ascertained. Eyewitnesses said smoke was seen emerging from one of the studios.
The fire was confined to electric wiring and installation, shooting material, ropes and curtains, the agency reported.
Directed by Aanand L Rai, Zero tells the story of a dwarf, played by Shah Rukh, who goes from Meerut to NASA, in a typical rags-to-riches story.
The film tracks the story of vertically challenged Bauua (Shah Rukh Khan), who falls in love with a cerebral palsy patent Aafia Yusufzai Bhinde (Anushka). His love story takes a drastic turn when he also falls for an alcoholic actress Babita Kumari (Katrina Kaif). After being dumped by Babita, Bauua realises he has destroyed everything he held dear and tries to win over Aafia again. The conclusion of Bauaa’s love story will be out in theatres on December 21.
Apart from King Khan, Anushka and Katrina the movie also stars, Abhay Deol, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Javed Jaffrey and R Madhavan. Actors Salman Khan, Kajol, Deepika Padukone and Rani Mukerji have cameo appearances in the film.
The trailer of Zero released earlier this month on Shah Rukh Khan’s birthday (November 2) and it was an instant hit on social media.
The movie is scheduled to hit the theatres on December 21.
