The shooting of Race 3 was stopped in a jiffy and Salman Khan was escorted to his residence in Bandra by Mumbai police, as armed men reached the sets of the film to kill Salman.
Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez were shooting for a song in Goregaon Film city for Race 3, but the shoot was stopped when a group of armed men entered Film City and threatened to kill Salman. He was escorted in another car by six cops, while his own car was driven back to his residence by another group of cops.
This incident is being linked to Salman’s court appearance in Jodhpur last week with regards to the black buck case that triggered the death threats by a local gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
Salman has now been provided with an additional layer of security by the police. The actor has also been instructed to stay away from the limelight and not to post his whereabouts on social media. He has also been advised not to go anywhere without security till the matter sorts.
A senior inspector added, “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. The police are taking Bishnoi’s threat seriously but we have assured Salman that he will receive maximum police protection. We are also investigating the motive behind Bishnoi’s threat to Salman.”
Producer Ramesh Taurani also confirmed the incident and further added, “There are additional bouncers, guards, and personnel to safeguard Salman and the unit at all times.”
We hope all stays well and in peace!
