A massive fire broke out on the top floor of the high-rise building in south Mumbai’s posh Prabhadevi area. Ms Padukone, who has her residence in one floor of the 34-storey Beaumonde Towers, and her office in another, was not in when the fire started, reported news agency Press Trust of India quoting sources.
“I am safe.Thank You everyone. Let us pray for our firefighters who are at site risking their lives,” the actor said in a tweet.
Officials said that the fire was seen on 33rd floor of the Beaumonte Towers at around 2.10 pm. In no time, thick black clouds of smoke were billowing out.
This is the third major fire incident in Mumbai this month.
