Confirming the news to Indian Express, Salman's father Salim Khan said, "While I don't know the exact details about when he left the sets, I do know that there were some threats".

Even though Salman Khan felt that he would be safer in Mumbai compared to the ongoing problems in Rajasthan over the blackbuck controversy, reports have it that men in the city too are being prepared to cause some mischief around the sets the superstar has been shooting. Though Salman returned to Mumbai and resumed the shoot of his next, Race 3 with Jacqueline Fernandez, the threats continued. Belonging to the same community in Rajasthan is Lawrence Bishnoi. On Wednesday, things took a drastic turn when armed men landed at the sets of "Race 3", Salman's upcoming film. The actor's court appearance in Jodhpur last Thursday in the black buck case is said to have triggered threats by gangster Lawrence Bishnoi, who was produced a day later in the same court amidst heavy security when he announced that he would kill Salman.

Thankfully, the police sensed the danger and alerted Salman, following which the actor's shooting was cancelled, and he was safely escorted home by the cops. The actor earlier received death threats from a gangster from the Bishnoi community that worships black bucks. 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. Post the police barging in the sets of Race 3, Salman was escorted in another auto by six cops, while another group of cops drove back his own vehicle to his residence.

The police are taking these threats very seriously and have added extra security measures for the actor.

After the incident, Salman Khan has been given extra security and has been forbidden to ride his cycle on the roads.

Khan has been asked to stay out of the limelight, not share his location on social media, and also not ride his bike in public, which he often does.
