After several death threats and warnings from a gangster surfaced against Salman Khan a few days ago, things have taken a turn for the worse.

According to Indian media reports, Salman was shooting for his upcoming film, Race 3 in Mumbai last night, when a dozen policemen barged in to inform that a group of armed men had entered the premises and were on their way over towards the actor. Salman was reportedly then rushed to the safety of his Bandra residence.

The actor’s court appearance in Jodhpur last Thursday in the black buck case is said to have triggered threats by gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was produced a day later in the same court amidst heavy security when he announced that he would kill Salman.

Reportedly, the gangster who was being produced in court on multiple charges of murder, extortion, and car-jacking, among others, is said to hail from a community in Rajasthan that worships the black buck. Several members reportedly even protested against Salman in light of new developments in the case.

“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,” a source revealed. “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 security has now apparently been beefed up.
