Police authorities have revealed that a fire broke out on the set of 'Zero' in Mumbai's Film City. Actor Shah Rukh Khan was present on the set when the incident happened, however, was unhurt and left the set later. Deputy Commissioner of Police Vinay Rathod said no casualties were reported and police are still investigating the cause of the fire. He also added that the fire was confined to electric wiring, electric installation, lights, shooting materials, ropes and curtains. Smoke was seen swelling out of the studio and four fire engines had to be rushed to the spot.

Directed by Anand L Rai, the film features actresses Katrina Kaif and Anushka Sharma in lead roles, and a cameo by Salman Khan . The bug budget movie ran into controversy earlier this month after Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) General Secretary Manjinder Singh Sirsa filed a complaint against Khan and the Rai for hurting Sikh sentiments. The movie tracks the story of vertically challenged Bauua (Shah Rukh Khan), who falls in love with a cerebral palsy patient Aafia Yusufzai Bhinde (Anushka). Their love story takes a drastic turn when he also falls for an alcoholic actress Babita Kumari (Katrina Kaif). The movie will be out in theatres on December 21.
