A day after the fire destroyed the studio of Cinevista in Kanjurmarg where the sets of the TV show Bepannaah was there, a body of a 20-year-old man, Gopi Verma, was found under the debris. Today, in the meeting between he FWICE and Cinevista representatives, it was said that the family of deceased will get a compensation of INR 35 Lakhs. 
 
A source told us, "After the meeting of the  FWICEs and Cinevista chief Mr. Vijay Singh, it was announced that a 35 lakh compensation will be given to the family of the deceased Gopi Verma. Along with that, a family member will be provided a job by the federation."
 
A short circuit at a power generation unit in the studio set off the blaze. Gopi’s uncle, Ram Dayal Verma, alleged that his life could have been saved had anyone raised an alarm that he was still inside the sets. Verma told a leading tabloid, "Those working with him did not tell the cops or the fire brigade that he was also with them and that he was nowhere to be seen."
 
Police surgeon Dr. S.M. Patil said Verma’s body was completely charred. "He died of shock due to 95% to 100% burns. His blood and skin samples have been sent to the forensic science laboratory in Kalina for tests. The chemical analysis will help to ascertain if he had suffered inhalation burns as well, while the skin sample will help in identifying the material that had caught fire."
 
According to the deputy chief fire officer Shyam Kharbade, they evacuated almost 150 people. He said, "We received a call at 8.25 pm. By the time fire engines reached the spot in around 15 minutes, the fire had spread over a ground plus one building, and had covered almost 3,000 sq ft. Almost 150 people had been evacuated."
