  • Apart from Salman Khan many other Bollywood celebs have received threats.
  • Celebs like SRK, Kangana Ranaut have been given Y+ grade security.

Salman Khan has been receiving threats from Lawrence Bishnoi and the group for the last few years ever since he was accused of killing the blackbucks in Rajasthan. The Bollywood superstar was earlier given X security but when he started receiving regular threatening emails from the Bishnoi group his security was upgraded to Y security which means that he will be accompanied by two armed bodyguards all the time. It also means that two security guards are positioned outside his home around the clock.

But after the gunshot episode outside the Galaxy Apartment, Maharashtra’s CM Eknath Shinde is thinking of upgrading his security to Y+. Apart from Salman Khan many other Bollywood celebs have received threats and were given security of different levels.

Shah Rukh Khan

Since his debut in Bollywood more than three decades ago, Shah Rukh Khan has received death threats many times. But when the threats became very serious after the release of Jawan and Pathaan, and after his son Aryan Khan allegedly was arrested in a drug case and later on released, his security was upgraded to Y+. His security entourage includes 11 security personnel including six with a police escort vehicle working round the clock. The entire security cost is borne by the superstar himself.

Vivek Agnihotri

The director got a lot of threat calls and hate on social media after the release of The Kashmir Files. He was offered Y-grade security with 4 to 5 armed commandos for his security.

Amitabh Bachchan

The legendary actor also has received death threats many times and hence has been given X-grade security with two armed police officers covering him all the time during public events.

Akshay Kumar

Bollywood’s Khiladi received threatening calls from Ravi Pujari for sacking domestic help and hence was offered X-grade security.

Kangana Ranaut

After SRK, Kangana is the only actor who has been given Y+ security from 2020 onwards. The security was offered to her after she clashed with then Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut and with BMC after her office in Mumbai was demolished. This was the same time when she also took potshots at many bigwigs in Bollywood after the death of Sushant Singh Rajput.
