Salman Khan's Race 3 shoot halted by a group of armed men

Salman Khan's Race 3 shoot halted by a group of armed men

On Wednesday, things took an ugly turn when armed men landed at Salman's next film "Race 3" sets at Film City, Mumbai and were heading towards him. On Tuesday, three men entered the sets of "Race 3" in Film city, Salman's upcoming movie, supposedly to hurt him, as per a report in the Mumbai Mirror. Apparently, Salman's court appearance in Jodhpur last week with regards to the black buck case had triggered the death threats by a local gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.

Salman had been charged for poaching endangered animals in Jodhpur. Producer Ramesh Taurani stopped the shoot and Salman was taken to his home in a different auto with 6 cops and his own vehicle arrived later to his place. "Salman was escorted in another auto by six cops, while his own vehicle was driven back to his residence by another group of cops", a source from the set was quoted by Mumbai Mirror. No arrest has made in the case.

Gangster Bishnoi apparently wanted to teach the Jodhpur police a lesson by killing the actor. Salman Khan has been provided extra security after the trail of incidents that have been happening. "Then he will come to know about our real identity", Bishnoi was quoted as saying. "Now, if the police want me to do some major crime, I shall kill Salman Khan and that too in Jodhpur", he told media on January 5.

Christmas boxsets give iPlayer its best week on record
In comparison, iPlayer had 58.6 million requests and 22.5 million hours watched in the same period in 2016. A Christmas treat of box-sets has helped BBC iPlayer achieve its best week on record.

The cops have considered the threat seriously because of which high security has been arranged for Salman Khan.

He further added, "The only action we are taking is to make sure that Salman is safe". Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Salim Khan said that this wasn't the first time his son was getting death threats. "In this industry, people keep getting such threats a lot". In 2017, several death threats were hurled at Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Deepika Padukone, for their controversial film, Padmaavat. Hindu extremist organisations had offered bounties on the actresses head.
