An unidentified person reportedly threatened to shoot down Boney Kapoor.
Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor
has received death threats over the phone from an unidentified
person, suspected to be linked to underworld don Ravi Pujari's
gang, the police said here on Thursday (September 5, 2013).
Explaining the gist of the threatening phone calls, a
police officer at Oshiwara police station said, "The caller
had given death threats saying that because of the film
producer, his two men had been arrested and the caller wanted
to take revenge now."
The caller allegedly threatened to shoot down the
husband of veteran actress Sridevi, the police said.
"Boney Kapoor received threatening calls and messages
during the last two days or so, but no specific demand was
made," a source close the movie producer said.
In February last year, Boney Kapoor's bungalow located
at Magnum Society compound in suburban Andheri was burgled of
cash and jewellery worth Rs 6 lakh, in connection with which
two accused had been arrested.
