Shocking! Salman Khan’s Race 3 shoot halted after a group of armed men entered the premises, threatening to kill the actor.
Salman Khan has been shuffling between the shooting schedules for Race 3 and Bigg Boss 11 over the past few weeks. To keep the schedule of Race 3 on track for the Eid release, he has been putting in extra hours.
However, in a shocking twist, the shoot was stopped day before yesterday (9 January) after a group of armed men entered the Goregaon Film City (where the actor was shooting) and threatening to kill the actor. 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.
According to a report, the gangster is a part of a community in Rajasthan that worships black bucks. And hence, three men in Mumbai threatened to kill him, while another group of vandals was being sent to protest near the Race 3 shooting location.
As a source from the sets told the tabloid, “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.”
Since this incident, Salman has been given additional security cover by the police, restricted to ride his cycle on roads, provided additional bouncers, guards and stay away from social media.
