A fire broke out on the top floor of posh Mumbai housing apartment in Worli area where actor Deepika Padukone lives.

The incident took place around 2pm on the 33rd floor of the building, NDTV reported.

An initial investigation suggests no-one has been injured in the incident. More than 90 residents of the building have been evacuated safely.

Padukone, who has her residence on one floor of the 34-storey Beaumonde Towers, and her office in another, was not in when the fire started, according to the Press Trust of India. Her home and office both are safe.

Witnesses said the top two floors are badly affected. It is not known yet what caused the fire.

Soon after the incident, social media users have been posting photos and dramatic videos of the fire.

Dark smokes have been seen billowing over the building in most of the post.  


Mumbai police said its staff and fire department officials are on the spot. "They are trying to do their best to douse the fire," Mumbai Police tweeted.

At least 10 fire engines, two quick response vans and five water tankers have been dispatched into service to douse the fire.

This is the third major fire incident in Mumbai this month, according to the Indian media.
