Amitabh Bachchan was one of those celebrities who narrowly avoided a mishap after a fire broke out during the Make In India event at Mumbai’s Girgaum Chowpatty. Big B immediately took to Twitter and revealed just how close he came to being caught up in the fire. He revealed, “First Off : I am safe and well .. a providential escape from fire at Make in India event where i had just finished performing ! What happened at event ? I just finished my performance got off stage and sat in my car and left .. just then fire on stage broke ! Production was wanting me to stay & go back on to meet the CM .. had I gone back would have been caught in fire .. providential. But its God's grace that immediate action was taken and the fire brought under control .. and no casualties !! But frightening !!”
In addition to Amitabh Bachchan, a number of other celebrities including Aamir Khan, Hema Malini, CM Devendra Fadnavis and Uddhav Thackeray were also present at the event. Apparently, the fire was caused by the pyrotechnics installed below the stage. Thankfully, there were no casualties.
