Bishnoi threatened to kill Salman due to their communities rage against him and he also wanted to prove the point of superiority as he gave this statement openly in media. However, in a shocking twist, the shoot was stopped day before yesterday (January 09) after a group of armed men entered the Goregaon Film City (where the actor was shooting), threatening to kill the actor. The policemen stopped the shooting immediately and escorted Salman to his house amidst tight security.
While Salman felt he would be safer in Mumbai, the Mumbai police found out that three men in the city had threatened to kill the actor as well, while a group of vandals was being mobilised to create mischief near his shooting location, according to the report. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, a tabloid, the cops believe this might be in connection to the death threats Salman Khan recently received from Rajasthan's gangster Lawrence Bishnoi.
The Mumbai Police have denied that armed men disrupted actor Salman Khan's shoot on Wednesday, and that he had to be escorted to safety, the Hindustan Times reported on Thursday. Following this, Salman has been given additional security by the police.More news: Jacksonville, OR man wins $1000004 with Powerball ticket

The threat was in the context of the two-decade-old blackbuck poaching case, as the Lawrence belongs to the Bishnoi community who worship the animal. "Salman was escorted in another auto by six cops, while his own vehicle was driven back to his residence by another group of cops", a source from the set told the tabloid.
Producer Ramesh Taurani has reportedly beefed up security cover on the sets of the film.
Salman Khan has received threats from 3 people other than Bishnoi. Following these threats, Salman has also been advised to stay away from his cycling sessions and not inform his fans about his whereabouts on social media.
