Post the performance of Bollywood Superstar Mr. Ambitabh Bachchan at the Make In India Cultural event held this evening at Mumbai’s Girgaum Chowpatty, a massive fire broke out making the entire stage go up in flames within a few minutes. Luckily Mr. Bachachan was done with his poetry recital and was in a safe zone when the fire broke out during the lavani dance performance.

The stage was close to the VIP enclosure with Bollywood personalities like Aamir Khan, Vivek Oberoi and actor/ politician Hema Malini and dignitaries like Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis, Governor C Vidyasagar Rao, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray.
