Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has been provided additional security following threats from the underworld.
The actor’s security was beefed up after an incident of gunfire outside the Juhu residence of his friend and business associate Karim Morani.
Reports say three rounds were fired outside Morani’s residence on Saturday night by unidentified assailants on a motorcycle and a note was found on the spot that said “Shahrukh Khan will be the next target”.
According to a TOI report, a gangster has been demanding from Morani the overseas rights of an upcoming Shahrukh Khan-starrer. But Morani, who is the executive producer of ‘Happy New Year’, hasn’t caved in to the gangster’s demand yet.
The police has registered a case and provided extra security to not just Karim Morani but also Shahrukh Khan.
The 48-year-old superstar has so far not commented on the development. His film Happy New Year is seen as a marquee release eagerly awaited by fans not just in India but worldwide. The film will hit theatres in Diwali weekend.
