Shah Rukh Khan's 'Zero'  will be hitting theatres in less than a month's time and the crew is working in break-neck speed to complete the patchwork. On Thursday, a fire broke out on the set of the film in Mumbai's Film City area.

Incidentally, SRK was present on the set when the fire broke out in the evening but was unhurt and left the set later, police said.

There are no reports of any casualty, Vinay Rathod, Deputy Commissioner of Police, said. It is not yet clear what caused the fire, he added.

The fire was confined to electric wiring, electric installation, lights, shooting materials, ropes and curtains, he said.

Smoke was seen billowing out of the studio, he said. Four engines were rushed to the spot.

Directed by Anand L Rai, 'Zero' is slated for release on December 21. In the film, Shah Rukh Khan plays a vertically challenged man who falls in love with a NASA scientist.  The film also stars Anushka Sharma and Katrina Kaif.
