Mumbai: A massive fire has broken out at Cinevista studio in east central Mumbai on Saturday evening.

According to PTI, eight fire engines and six water tankers have been pressed into service to put out the flames.

 

According to reports, the fire department received a call at around 8 pm and the fire engines reached the spot at 8:25 pm.
