  • Print


Salman Khan was in Jodhpur recently for the hearing of the blackbuck poaching case. The actor was accused of poaching in the year 1998 and since then has been involved in the ongoing case. Salman, who is one of the biggest stars of Bollywood received a death threat from a gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who is said to hail from the community that worships the blackbuck, just a day after he returned from Jodhpur. Bishnoi was quoted saying, "Salman Khan will be killed here, in Jodhpur... Then he will come to know about our real identity." After the incident, Salman and his team thought the actor was at least safe after returning to Mumbai from Jodhpur, but it did not last for long.
On Monday, a senior officer informed the Superstar that three men in Mumbai wanted to kill him when at the same time a group of vandals was creating ruckus near the location where Salman was shooting.
Several police officers entered the sets of Race 3 where Salman was shooting after they got a report of a few men carrying arms entering the location to harm the actor.
Salman was rushed to Galaxy Apartments and has been asked to stay low key. Following the incident, Salman has been given additional security by the police.  A source from the sets of Race 3 said "The police arrived at the Race 3 set in Film City and told Salman and producer Ramesh Taurani that the shoot had to be stopped immediately as the actor needed to head home as soon as possible. Salman was escorted in another car by six cops, while his own car was driven back to his residence by another group of cops."
The producer of Race 3, Ramesh Taurani told Mumbai Mirror, "There are additional bouncers, guards and personnel to safeguard Salman and the unit at all times." Well, we hope the superstar stays safe!
