New Delhi: The relationship between the underworld and Bollywood has always been a troubled one. Many stories have been told and many celebrities have landed in trouble in the past because of them.
According to reports, this time mafia don Ravi Pujari has targeted Shah Rukh Khan. A big time fan of Preity Zinta, the underworld gangster sent a message to Karim Morani, a close associate and friend of SRK mentioning his name in it. Pujari also threatened him by directing calling at his office.
Apparently, Pujari who has been absconding, wanted king Khan to do a show abroad for free, which he was organising for one of his friends. And for this reason, he contacted Morani because of the close affinity that he shares with the star. Morani owns a company which takes care of Bollywood tours abroad.
However, Morani reportedly denied of any such collaboration with SRK's tour for `Happy New Year` and said he had no business with it. Following which Pujari sent his goons to unleash his wrath at the refusal, as he did not believe Morani.
The two unidentified miscreants fired five rounds at his Juhu residence and sped away on their bike. If reports are anything to go by, then it has also come to light that Pujari also called up SRK's office and warned him to break all ties with Morani as he had close links with other underworld gangs.
This is not the first time that he has issued a threat to a Bollywood celeb. Few months back, he had been in the news after he threatened Ness Wadia's father warning them to steer clear of Preity Zinta.
This action came after Preity had lodged a complaint against Ness in June alleging that her former boyfriend had humiliated her in public during an Indian Premier League match on May 30 at the Wankhede stadium in South Mumbai. She had charged him for harassment and humiliation among other things.
