Producers Alind Srivastava and Nisar Parvez have denied reports of a fire on the sets of their TV show Ali Baba: Dastaan-e-Kabul. “Our set is completely fine. It happened on the other set,” confirmed Parvez. The news of a massive fire ravaging Bhajanlal studios in the early hours of Saturday emerged on Sunday.
Srivastava clarified that the studio where they are shooting is on the 11th floor and the fire incident took place on a deserted floor. He says, “We shoot on one floor. Meanwhile, the fire started on the second floor. We were shooting outside (when the incident happened) and thank God for that.
According to fire brigade officials, the fire broke out at the studio in Kaman, Vasai on the outskirts of Mumbai around midnight on Friday. A fire brigade official of the Vasai-Virar City Municipal Corporation said the fire was doused at 4 am on Saturday. He said that the cause of the fire is yet to be ascertained.
The news of the fantasy drama going off the air made headlines earlier this month. Srivastava confirmed the report. He says, ‘Yes, it is going off air but in the month of June. We will finish by the end of this month. There could be a difference of a day or two in the shooting dates.”
