The threat assumes significance as it comes days after the Punjabi singer Sidhu Moose Wala was shot dead. The singer was allegedly killed by the members of the Lawrence Bishnoi gang. The same person who had threatened Salman Khan in 2018. Lawrence Bishnoi is lodged in Delhi’s Tihar jail and is being questioned by the police on the killing of Sidhu Moose Wala.
Salman, who had travelled to Abu Dhabi for the IIFA event is back in the city. He will soon be seen in Tiger 3 and Kabhi Eid Kabhi Diwali with Pooja Hegde. He also has a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan starrer Pathan.
