Deepika had purchased a flat in this builsing in 2010 with father Prakash Padukone. The property has been jointly registered in the name of Deepika and Prakash.

Mumbai Police said it on Twitter, “They are trying to do their best to douse the fire.” In another tweet it said, “Our staff & Fire Brigade is on the spot for assistance. They are trying their best to douse the fire and provide necessary help to people there.”

Social media users have been posting photos and dramatic videos of the fire.

In October last year, a massive fire had broken out in Le Mer building in Bandra, where a number of celebrities live including Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’s mother lived.
