Massive fire breaks out Mumbai’s Cinevista Studio in Kanjurmarg area

Mumbai: A massive fire broke out at Mumbai’s Cinevista in the Kkanjurmarg area on Saturday evening, days after the city had witnessed a fire in Kamala Mills compound. The fire at Cinevista is reportedly of level 2 and according to a video shared by a user on Twitter, huge flames can be seen coming out of the building. There is no report about any casualty so far. It was reported that 7 fire tenders were rushed to the spot. Cinevista studio is constructed across a 5-acre property that is a one-stop shop for all shooting needs. The studio is located on LBS Marg, Gandhi Nagar Junction, Kanjurmarg (West).

The official website of the studio states that it is a mix of all kinds of permanent and temporary sets and over 30 shooting locations. In addition to these floors, it has three large empty shooting floors of dimensions 120X60 ft with height of 28ft, which can be used to meet any specific need and requirements of clients. The studio complex also has an equipment hub, which has a wide range of cameras, lights and other accessories for film, and TV shoots.

A similar fire broke out in Kamala Mills compound, which claimed 14 lives on December 29. Yesterday, a report by the Mumbai fire department stated that flying embers from illegal hookah being served at Mojo’s Bistro was the probable cause of the deadly blaze. The police have already arrested the co-owner of the cafe in relation to the case.

“On the basis of the report by the fire bridge, we have booked owners of Mojo’s Bistro pub for culpable homicide,” Deputy Commissioner of Police and spokesperson of Mumbai Police Sachin Patil told PTI earlier on Saturday. A senior police official gave the names of Mojo’s Bistro pub owners as Yug K Pathak and Nagpur-based businessman Yug Tulli.

Earlier, the police had booked owners of ‘1 Above’ pub, Kripesh Sanghvi and Jignesh Sanghvi, co-owner Abhijeet Manka and others on various charges, including culpable homicide not amounting to murder.
