Popular TV star Shaheer Sheikh’s wife Ruchika Kapoor and their 16-month-old daughter had a narrow escape in a major accident. The building where Ruchika was staying recently caught fire. Ruchika was living with her daughter at her parents’ house. The building where his house is located caught fire. Along with Ruchika and her 16-month-old daughter, her father also got trapped in the fire. Since Ruchika’s father is in a wheelchair and cannot move, all three are trapped in the building and cannot get out. Then actor Shaheer Sheikh helped him.

In this difficult time, Ruchikaa Kapoor acted with courage and consciousness. Without panicking, he called Shaheer Sheikh and informed that the building was on fire. Ruchika has shared the incident on her Instagram account. Also told that due to father being on a wheelchair, she could not descend 15 floors with daughter Anaya. This incident happened on the night of 25 January.

Ruchika Kapoor wrote in the post shared the incident at 1.30 pm on January 25, ‘ I got a call at 1.30 pm that our building was on fire. When we opened the main door, there was a plume of black smoke in front of us. Nothing was visible. It was impossible for us to get out of there. We had no choice but to wait. How long to wait? Do not know. I was horrified. I called Shaheer to tell him what happened. But took care not to panic. I didn’t want to put them in panic as well.’ The rooms were filled with smoke, Ruchikaruchika Kapoor was scared, further wrote, ‘My father is on a wheelchair and remains ill. My daughter is 16 months old. I knew that it was impossible to get out of there, yet I could hear the voices of people asking me to get out quickly. It was difficult to get down from the 15th floor. We wet towels and put them under the doors of the house so that the smoke could not enter the house. But smoke was rapidly filling the rooms. Then a firefighter came and told us to wet napkins and put them on our noses so that we don’t faint. He told us that they are trying to douse the fire. It is a matter of some time and till then they will be taken out safely.

Shaheer Sheikh rushed to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher, while below, Shaheer along with the rest of the boys were pushing the vehicles to another place so that space could be made for the fire engine. Neighbors called me and told me that Shaheer himself had come upstairs with a fire extinguisher and tried to douse the fire. Later came the fire extinguishers. Finally at 3.30 Shaheer, my brother-in-law and 4 fire fighters came to us. This was probably the first time we encountered such a situation. First we took out mother and daughter Anaya. Then Shaheer and brother-in-law took my father down 15 floors on a wheelchair. By then it was 5 in the morning. I am thankful to all the fire fighters who saved us. I am very happy that Anaya and I had made up our mind to spend this weekend with our parents. Because I shudder to think what would have happened if we were not there? What Shaheer did for us seems like a scene from a movie.
