And now the actor has been provided with Y+ security.

Post that, the actor seems to have approached the Mumbai police to seek protection wherein he revealed that he has been receiving death threats, after which the police sprung into action and provided him Y+ security cover, The said cover includes six armed personnel around the clock unlike his usual security which only included two officers.

Back in the 90’s when the underworld bullying of the film stars was at its peak @iamsrk was THE ONLY star who never gave in. “Goli marni hai mar do, par tumhaare liye kaam nahin karoonga. Main Pathan hoon.” He said. He’s the same today.”
