Shah Rukh Khan's recent blockbuster, Om Shanti Om, brought him great fortune but with side-effects.
He has been receiving extortion calls from gangster Bunty Pandey, who targets Bollywood biggies for money, just like Abu Salem did.
Shahrukh got repeated calls from the gangster demanding a sum of Rs 2 crore. He informed Mumbai police and its Anti-Terrorist Squad about the calls. It is reported that Pandey sent six goons to Shahrukh to speak to him personally.
The Crime Branch and ATS teams are on the trail of the gangsters and they have been successful to some extent on their mission. The security around Shahrukh's bungalow Mannat has been tightened.
This is not the first time Shahrukh has been the target of the underworld.
Earlier, after the shooting of Dil To Pagal Hai, he had received threat calls from Abu Salem, who wanted him to act in a certain movie being produced by his acquaintance and Khan had refused him.
