Video captured the moment a leopard ran across the set of a TV show filmed in India, forcing the cast and crew to flee the area.

The incident reportedly happened on Wednesday in Mumbai during the filming of the soap opera “Sukh Mhanje Nakki Kay Asta”.

Footage showed the leopard walking along the ceiling beams as a rustling sound could be heard in the background.

“It’s behind you, behind the door!” one person shouted during the video, according to Jam Press.

The clip has since gone viral with hundreds of thousands of views.

“There were over 200 people on set, someone could have died,” Suresh Shyamlal Gupta, the head of the All Indian Cine Workers Association, told Jam Press.

“In the past 10 days, there have been three or four such cases,” he added.

Gupta also said “the government is not moving quickly on this” and “not taking strong action against this”.

No injuries were reported.

The setting where the incident occurred borders a large forest, Jam Press reported.

Following Wednesday’s incident, camera traps were reportedly set in hopes of finding the animal, he added.

In May, a man was seen on video sleeping in a garage in western India when a leopard snuck up and grabbed his pet dog.

Video of this incident showed the dog flailing as the leopard bit the dog by the neck and ran away.

The man, who appeared to be sleeping on a table, awoke from his sleep to see the leopard running away.

In 2019, a leopard snuck into a residential area in northern India and attacked four people, Fox News Digital reported at the time.

Residents of Jalandhar town notified the police when they saw the big cat inside a house. When forest officers arrived they tried to tranquilize him, but he escaped through a wall and into the village, sending the townspeople running for their lives.
