Since the Super Dancer 2 set was completely damaged, it was said that the show (which was set to hit the television screens within 15 days) might get postponed. By 3.04 p.m., the blaze was categorised as a Level II fire, fire brigade officers said, adding six fire engines and five tankers were pressed into service.

As of now, no injuries have been reported in the incident. However, there was no crew as no shooting was scheduled on Saturday. The building has also been evacuated.

The RK studio, based on VN Purav Marg in Chembur, houses the logistics of the RK Films production company, both established by and named after Bollywood actor, producer, and director Raj Kapoor.

After actor Rishi Kapoor, whose father founded the studio, tweeted about the fire, actor Anupam Kher, too, took to Twitter to write: "Feeling bad about the #RKStudio fire. All your concerns appreciated".

Fire fighters try to douse the blaze.

The R K Studio was founded in 1948. Luckily, there have been no casualties or injuries.

A source from the set said, "No one was present when the set caught fire".

The busy area witnessed traffic snarl as fire tenders, water tankers and several ambulances were rushed to the site, an eyewitness said.

The last film made under the banner was Aa Ab Laut Chalen by Rishi Kapoor in 1999. After Raj Kapoor's death, his elder son, actor Randhir Kapoor took over the studio. Later, his younger brother Rajiv Kapoor directed "Prem Granth".
