Varun Dhawan and Sara Ali Khan photographed in Mumbai.
The sets of work-in-progress film Coolie No 1, starring Sara Ali Khan and Varun Dhawan, were ravaged by a fire that broke out early Wednesday morning, reports Mumbai Mirror which has released footage of the blaze that engulfed Filmistan Studio in the Mumbai suburb of Goregaon. No casualties have been reported. The fire reportedly began at 12.30 am, soon after which fire fighters arrived to put it out. No other details are known, including what caused the blaze. The actors have not yet commented and neither have the producers or the director, David Dhawan, who is Varun's father.
Coolie No 1 is a remake of the 1995 hit film of the same name, also directed by Mr Dhawan. The original rendition of the film featured Govinda and Karisma Kapoor in the lead roles.
Varun Dhawan revealed last week that steel bottles had replaced plastic ones on the Coolie No 1 set:
Being a plastic-free nation is the need of the hour and great intiative taken by our prime minister and we can all do this by making small changes. The sets of #CoolieNo1 will now only use steel bottles. @PMOIndiapic.twitter.com/T5PWc4peRX
