Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, often referred to as "King Khan," has reportedly received death threats following the astounding success of his recent film, "Jawan”.
According to details, the Maharashtra government has responded swiftly by elevating Khan's security to the Y+ category.
The acclaimed actor sought the intervention of the state authorities after allegedly receiving threats in the wake of the releases of his movies "Pathaan" and "Jawan," said the Maharashtra Police.
The heightened security measures for Khan come in the midst of widespread acclaim for "Jawan," a film that many have described as a rare mainstream Bollywood movie with a profound political message.
The movie has sparked discussions about its apparent "anti-establishment" undertones and its call for sensible voting.
On October 2, the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, Shah Rukh Khan paid a heartfelt tribute to the iconic leader, emphasizing the timeless relevance of Gandhi's teachings.
In an Instagram post, Khan wrote, "Mahatma Gandhi Ji’s teachings are timeless and have underlined the importance of compassion, unity, and love. He taught us how to never lose spirit and heart in the face of adversity. Let’s remember him and celebrate his legacy on the special occasion of Gandhi Jayanti."
