Sunny Deol's son Rajveer shooting in the area
As per a report in ETimes, Sunny Deol's younger son Rajveer Deol was shooting in an adjacent set where the fire broke out on Friday. Rajveer was in the middle of a scene for his debut film, backed by Rajshri Productions. The Rajshri film's shooting has been stopped and the cast and crew have been sent home. However, the fire on Luv's film set spread rather quickly and caused damage to the Rajshri set too. Rajveer is reported to be safe. The entire set of the movie was also gutted in the fire.
The contractor who erected the sets was the same person who had erected the film set at Bangur Nagar which had caught fire a year and a half ago.
