After getting a gun, Salman Khan zips around in a bullet-proof imported SUV

Mumbai– Under threats from various quarters, Bollywood mega-star Salman Khan has acquired a swank white bullet proof SUV in which he zips around, barely months after getting a gun licence for self-defence, sources close to the actor said.

Already accorded a Y-Plus Security cover, Khan is not taking chances and has imported a yet-to-be-launched Nissan Patrol SUV for his travail-free travels in and around Mumbai.

This would be an upgrade on his erstwhile modified Toyota Land Cruiser with armour and bulletproof glass, but is considered a lower level of protection.

The developments follow the series of threats in the past few months from the mafia don Lawrence Bishnoi’s gang, to him and his aged father and renowned Bollywood writer Salim Khan.

Bishnoi had even proclaimed in an interview that his life goal was to “kill Salman Khan”, even as the security cover for the actor and his celeb family was stepped up a few weeks ago.

Khan has scheduled his next big release, ‘Kissi Ka Bhai, Kissi Ki Jaan’, later this month coinciding with the Ramzan-end festival of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Later he has Diwali line-up of ‘Tiger 3’ and then ‘Tiger Vs. Pathaan’ in which he will work with Shah Rukh Khan.

She shared two photos of herself wearing a black gym wear as she posed with her gym trainer, Sujeet Kargutkar. In the first picture, the actress can be seen flexing her core muscles but her caption has another story to tell – that of temptation and craving. Taapsee captioned the post, “Months of grilling and hard work only so i could have the biscuits and he could have his cup of tea. @sujeetkargutkar you finally have the picture and I’m off to have my chole bhature and croissantsa.

Her friends from the film fraternity flooded the comments section with praises. From Huma Qureshi to Pratik Gandhi and Shreya Dhanwanthary – friends from the fraternity heaped praises on her dedication.

Meanwhile, on the work front, the actress has Rajkumar Hirani’s ‘Dunki’ with Shah Rukh Khan which will hit the big screen in December 2023. She also has ‘Phir Aayi Haseen Dillruba’ in the pipeline. (IANS)
