For context, a fire broke out in a multi-storey building in Mumbai which houses the residence and office of Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. Deepika was not inside the 34-storey Beaumonde building in the Prabhadevi area where the blaze emanated from the top floor, according to fire department officials and sources close to the actress.
Deepika's house is on one floor of the building and office in another but both were unaffected by the fire, said sources close to her.
No one was injured so far in the blaze which was reported at 2.08 pm, fire brigade sources said. Over 90 people have been safely evacuated from the building even as the fire department personnel were trying to douse the fire, the sources said.
At least 10 fire engines, two quick response vans, five water tankers have been put in service to douse the fire.
