Media reports said that Shah Rukh and his residence Mannat here got tight security from the Mumbai police after gangster Ravi Pujari tried to get in touch with him Monday afternoon. However, a source close to the movie icon, says otherwise.
"Shah Rukh has not got any such calls. We wonder why such rumours are being spread," the source told IANS.
Following rounds of firing that took place at Kareem Morani of Morani Brothers' residence, who are close to SRK, security around the actor is said to have been upped.
When contacted, a police official told IANS: "He has been given police protection for a long time now. So why is there so much of talk about it?"
Shah Rukh, who has worked with the Morani Brothers on his Temptations Reloaded tour, is currently awaiting the release of "Happy New Year".
