Talking about the massive fire breakout at the Make In India Week' event at the Girgaum Chowpatty on Sunday evening, Actor Amitabh Bachchan is relieved that there were no casualties during the fire that broke out at the 'Make In India Week' event, saying the incident happened just after his performance. The blaze started during the 'Maharashtra Rajni' event when a lavani dance performance was underway.
"I just finished my performance, got off stage, sat in my car and left... Just then, a fire on stage broke out!," the 73 year old tweeted. "The Production was wanting me to stay and go back on to meet the CM... Had I gone back, would have been dangerous.. providential. It's God's grace that immediate action was taken and the fire was brought under control...No casualties !! But frightening!!."
Actor Aamir Khan, who also wrote of the mishap on his Facebook page, said, "The fire during the live show at Chowpatty was most unfortunate, but the crisis was very well handled by the Mumbai Police, Fire Department and the Maharashtra Government," he said. "The evacuation was carried out smoothly resulting in no casualties and no panic. The CM stayed till the end to oversee the evacuation. Excellent disaster management," the 50-year-old actor added.
