Eid is round the corner, and Salman Khan’s fans are gearing up for his big film Race 3 on the auspicious occasion. But naturally his father Salim Khan is worried about the actor’s safety.
In a conversation with Mid-Day, he has said, “There is added security for Salman, who has, in any case, always had a good team of security personnel deployed for him. It [threat] is not much of a concern [for the family]. We are only worried about his safety, and that is being taken care of. We have faith in the Mumbai police, and they are doing their job well."
He has further added, “This is not the first time that Salman has encountered threats. Everyone is concerned about safety, but work can't stop."
For those who’ve come in late, let us tell you, Lawrence Bishnoi had threatened to kill Salman Khan in January this year when the trials of his Blackbuck Case were still going on. Few days back, Hyderabad police had arrested Sampat Nehra - a sharpshooter who was employed by Lawrence's gang and was working on the plan of killing the actor. Police had revealed that Sampat was in fact in Mumbai in May first week to recee places around Salman's house. He clicked photos of the actor's house and the routes leading to it on his mobile phone, which was seized by the cops during investigation.
Speaking to a section of the media, Satheesh Balan, Deputy Inspector General (DIG) of Haryana Special Task Force had then said, "In the first week of May, Sampat Nehra was in Mumbai and surveyed the house of Salman Khan and the time when he comes out in the balcony of his house to wave to his fans. He tried to find out the distance to the balcony and had even taken few photographs of the house."
Salman’s Race 3 hits theatres on Friday (June 15).
