It is speculated that the fire started in a temporary pandal that was set up using wooden sticks and logs. However, the cause of the fire is still unclear. The fire was doused after five hours with the help of eight fire engines, five water jetties, and other equipment.
Film producer Boney Kapoor, who is set to mark his debut with this film told Bombay Times that only lighting work was being done at the set, and that the shoot was about to begin on Saturday, which has now been delayed.
