The 62-year-old actor took to Twitter to confirm his safety after the incident.

He even thanked his fans for showing concern.

Even though the reason behind the fire remains unclear, a report by The Times Of India suggests that a fire tender immediately reached the spot after a short circuit in a refrigerator in his gym caused the fire.
