Salman Khan is busy shooting for his upcoming film ‘Race 3’, which is scheduled to release this Eid. The actor, with Jacqueline Fernandez, was in the Goregaon Film City, Mumbai, shooting for one of the songs from the film and the shooting was stopped suddenly because some goons entered and interrupted the crew. A day before yesterday, i.e. on 9th January, a group of armed men entered the Film City and threatened to kill Salman. Insiders say that the incident is linked with Salman’s court appearance in Jodhpur last week with regards to the black buck case which had triggered the death threats by a local gangster Lawrence Bishnoi. Once the news reached the cops, they immediately rushed to the spot and escorted Salman back to his residence in Bandra. According to a report in Mumbai Mirror, Lawrence Bishnoi is a part of a community in Rajasthan that worships black bucks. And hence, three men in Mumbai threatened to kill him.

As a source from the sets told a 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.”

Producer Ramesh Taurani also confirmed the incident to Mumbai Mirror and further added, “There are additional bouncers, guards, and personnel to safeguard Salman and the unit at all times.”
