Mumbai: A man named Lawrence Bishnoi had reportedly threatened to kill Bollywood actor Salman Khan after he had made an appearance before the Jodhpur court in connection with the black buck case recently.
According to a DNA report, the threat came a day after Salman had visited Jodhpur and Bishnoi too was produced before the same court amidst heavy security.
A Mumbai Mirror report said that on Tuesday over a dozen policemen rushed to the sets of his upcoming film Race 3 to inform him about a few men who had entered the premises. The actor was then safely escorted to his Bandra residence.
"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 tabloid quoted a source as saying.
“This is not the first time a threat has been issued against Salman or a member of his family, and the actor is often spotted about town without security or even his bodyguard, Shera, but anticipating an unprecedented attack, he has been asked to be extra safe,” a senior inspector revealed.
Producer Ramesh Taurani has reportedly beefed up security cover on the sets of the film.
