Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor are busy shooting for their upcoming film,ABCD 2, which is being directed by Remo D’Souza. After the Las Vegas shoot, the team returned to India and are now caught up in the Mumbai schedule.

There were around 600 people on the set who were doing dance rehearsals on the stage. All of a sudden, a cluster came off from the roof of the backstage. Naturally, everyone panicked and started rushing out of the studio. The shoot was called off for the day.
“Remo and Varun helped evacuate the set. Nobody got hurt. There is a week of shoot left and it will resume soon,” Varun’s spokesperson was quoted by a tabloid.
Varun also took to Twitter to share this news with his fans. “There was a fire and our set got burnt down.We safely evacuated600 people and we will be back to work tomorrow.WE WONT STOP DANCING. #abcd2,” read the Badlapur actor’s tweet.
