Saved from a nightmare that could have been worse, the shopowners and authorities at Forum Mall ensured that the show goes on.

Tuesday morning saw them putting their best foot forward.

The shops were open as usual at 10.30 a.m. and it was difficult to believe that they had passed by a traumatic Monday evening of fire and fear barely 16 hours ago.

Expresso observed that only the Transit Food Court was closed to the public.

Quoting eye-witnesses, Police Inspector of Adugodi Police Station, Shiva Shankar Reddy said that the fire broke out in one of the food counters at the Transit Food Court and spread to other areas within the restaurant.

“The mall has returned to normalcy now,” he said.

All the shops, restaurants, and the multiplex, at the Mall started to function as usual and were opened to the public. The customers were flocking to the Mall as usual.

Yogesh, manager of the Zodiac showroom at the Mall, acknowledged that business was slightly dented on Tuesday but was confident that things would be back to normal in a matter of days.

Jermina Menon, Forum’s marketing head said, “The renovation work would be undertaken once the insurance company is through with its investigation. We are working at reopening the food court as soon as possible.”
