Mumbai: A massive fire Sunday night engulfed the stage at a cultural event held at Girgaum Chowpatty seafront here where a string of film celebrities and political leaders were present as part of the high-profile ‘Make in India’ investment meet but there were no casualties.

The fire that broke out at around 8.22 pm was put under control, Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis told reporters.

“No casualties reported, no one is injured,” he said.

All the VVIPs including Fadnavis, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan were safely evacuated to safer areas. The programme was later called off.

Bachchan had left the stage a few minutes before the fire started.

The disaster management plan put in place ensured the safe passage of the people attending the event -“Maharashtra Rajni”, Fadnavis, who personally monitored the evacuation operation from the venue, said.

The blaze was brought under control in quick time by 14 fire engines and 10 water tankers with swift evacuation of thousands of people.
