Following the threat, armed men reached the sets of the star's ongoing film Race 3, at Film City, Mumbai, and moved towards Salman Khan, when police was alerted sensing the danger to the life of the star.
Now, claiming that they have information on Rajasthan gangsters coming to Mumbai to kill Salman, the Mumbai police rushed to the actor's movie sets, escorted him to his house and advised him to stay home for a couple of days. According to a Mumbai Mirror report, police arrived on Race 3 sets and informed the actor that he has to go home as soon as possible, and the shooting had to be stopped. "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 said. No arrest has made in the case.
After the incident, Salman Khan has been given extra security and has been forbidden to ride his cycle on the roads. "Now, if police want me to do some major crime, I shall kill Salman Khan and that too in Jodhpur", he told media on January 5.
Lawrence has been charged with over 20 attempts to murder, carjacking, extortion and snatching.
The officer added that police would provide the Tiger Zinda Hai actor adequate security.
Confirming the news of threats, Salman's father Salim Khan said that he doesn't know the exact details about when Salman leaves the sets, but he does know that there were some threats.
The threat was in the context of the two-decade-old blackbuck poaching case, as the Lawrence belongs to the Bishnoi community who worship the animal. "In this industry, people keep getting threats".
This is not the first time an actor has received death threats.
"We are taking Bishnoi's threat seriously but we have assured Salman that he will receive maximum police protection". Hindu extremist organisations had offered bounties on the actresses head.
