Sood was returning home to Andheri from a press conference in Worli, when all of a sudden, a bystander noticed smoke coming out from the car.
Fortunately for Sood, he was not in the car and was travelling in another car behind the Audi. Sood said, “I was returning home and my friend Ajay Dhama was driving the Audi. The incident took place at Kalanagar junction, but Dhama escaped unhurt.”
Eyewitnesses said that auto drivers rushed to the spot and doused the flames. Following the incident, the car was towed to the Kherwadi police station.
Sources from Kherwadi police said that no case had been registered. Just an hour after the incident, a taxi (above) caught fire at the same spot. Fortunately no one was injured in the second blaze too.
