The shooting of ‘Race 3′ was stopped as gunmen approached the set of the movie. The police immediately reached the set and halted the shooting due to security concerns.

Six police officials escorted the actor safely to his residence. Police also advised the actor to keep a low profile for a few days. If that is even possible for someone like Salman Khan to do is a mysterious question itself. 

The actor’s court appearance in the black bucks case on Thursday triggered the threats by the gangster. A day later after publicly threatening the actor, the gangster was produced in the same court.

A source from the set stated: “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,”

The death threats were issued to the actor by gangsters from Bishnoi community that worships blackbucks, a type of antelope Salman has been accused of poaching. His appearance at the blackbuck case led to this situation.

Salman Khan is facing a case in Jodhpur for hunting the animal for ten years now.

The police have made no arrests so far. However, on January 5th, gangster Lawrence Bishnoi of Rajasthan threatened the Dabangg actor. He said, “Salman will be killed here in Jodhpur. Then he will come to know about our real identity. Now, if the police want me to do some major crime, I shall kill Salman and that too in Jodhpur.”

The shooting of ‘Race 3′ was stopped as gunmen approached the set of the movie. The police immediately reached the set and halted the shooting due to security concerns.
