The set of Comedy Nights with Kapil, which is set up in Film City, Goregaon was gutted in a fire that started on Wednesday morning. Though the set was reduced to ashes, fortunately there were no casualties reported.
The fire reportedly started at 8.15 am on Wednesday morning due to a short circuit, and spread quickly to the whole set. The fire brigade managed to get the flames under control in an hour, but still the blaze damaged most of the set, leaving the cast unable to shoot the show.
A spokesperson for Colors, on which the top rated show airs, said,” ”It is unfortunate that such an incident has occurred on the sets of Comedy Nights With Kapil. There have been no casualties and we are currently in the process of accessing the extent of the damage. Meanwhile, we are focusing all our efforts to resume shooting for the show so that we have no disruption and we don't disappoint our loyal viewers".
Sonu Niigaam, who was supposed to appear on the show today, tweeted, “Can u all imagine! I get prepared for Comedy Nights with Kapil, and d set burns into ashes d same day.”
Meanwhile, Kapil Sharma, the host of the show tweeted, “V all r fine.thnks for ur concern..need ur best wishes..v wl b back for all of u..love u all.”
We hope that the Comedy Nights team recovers from this soon and gets back to making India laugh!
