The 34-storey apartment complex, in south Mumbai neighbourhood Prabha Devi, caught fire this afternoon.
Deepika, who lives on one floor of the complex and has an office on another, was not in the building when the fire began and reports claim that actress’ home or office has not been damaged.
Several fire engines, two quick response vans and five water tankers are believed to be at the spot putting the fire out. No casualties have been reported so far. Police sources say over 90 residents of the apartment complex have been safely evacuated. It is not clear what started the fire.
