The Federation of Western India Cine Employees has taken the fire that killed one person on the set of the untitled Ranbir Kapoor film directed by Luv Ranjan very seriously (FWICE).

Following A Fire On Ranbir’s Set, The Federation Of Western India Cine Employees Has Written To Authorities.

It is made apparent in a letter issued to the Chief Minister, Deputy Chief Minister, and Chief Fire Officer of Maharashtra that risks on film sets require immediate attention.

The letter states, “We would like to bring to your attention the numerous letters we have made to the abovementioned authorities informing them of the dangerous working conditions in the film business, which put the lives of our members in grave danger.

This is true despite our repeated requests that these filming locations be inspected by the proper authorities to ensure studio owners’ compliance with the law.” The letter then discusses the most recent fire catastrophe: “This recklessness led to another major, dangerous fire accident at the Chitrakoot ground in Andheri, where two sets were entirely destroyed, resulting in the death of a 32-year-old man and a loss of close to one crore rupees.”

It is quite concerning that filming occurs in locations where there are no regular structural or fire inspections and where filming occurs without the required legal licences.

The letter emphasises that film sets in Mumbai are highly susceptible to catching fire. “Such occurrences are extremely tragic, and our members are required to work in extremely risky and stressful conditions that may result in the loss of life.

You must be aware that thousands of individuals are simultaneously working on a project. On these massive construction sites, five to ten projects are simultaneously initiated, putting the lives of close to one million workers at risk. Regular Fire Audits and Structural Audits must be conducted, and fire safety equipment must be inspected and placed in plain view to prevent such risky scenarios.

None of the studio owners, producers, or production houses adhere to these fundamental guidelines. When operating in such hazardous conditions, pressure and risk are always present.

The FWICE desires a permanent team to monitor fire safety on film shoots. “Once more, we’d like to request that you appoint a team of your best people to make regular checks on all the shooting locations within and outside of Mumbai to ensure that all the safety and security rules are being followed by studio owners, producers, and production houses, so that similar incidents do not occur in the film industry again.”
