He may be Indian television*s first superhero -- Shaktimaan -- who brought baddies to task, but in real life Mukesh Khanna has little choice but to turn to the police for protection. After getting a life-threatening call, the actor filed a complaint at the Samata Nagar police station last night.

On Wednesday at 7.15 pm, Khanna received a call at his office in Thakur Complex. The call was answered by his manager Ramesh Pandya.

According to the complaint, as soon as Pandya answered the phone, the caller started hurling abuses. "The caller then asked for Khanna, but when I informed that he was not in office, the caller threatened to kill him on June 5. He used foul language," said Pandya in his complaint to the cops.

Pandya informed Khanna about the call immediately, but it was only last night that they approached the police.u00a0u00a0u00a0
Bhausaheb Ahir, assistant police inspector, Samta Nagar police station, said, "We have received the threat and abuse complaint. We will provide Khanna with security and have also spoken to MTNL to trace the number from where the call was made, as the actor*s office phone did not have caller ID."
