The news of Salman Khan receiving an ominous death threat sent shock waves across the country. The actor was contacted through his father Salim Khan by an anonymous agency (at the time) during the latter's morning walk, with an apparent intent to extort the duo of money. In this vein, Salman's acting colleague and close friend Kiccha Sudeep has addressed the precarious situation and stated that he did check on the Bollywood superstar following the threat.

"He is a harmless man, he is a straightforward man," said the Vikrant Rona actor of Salman Khan, and added that it would be the responsibility of the police and those around Khan to keep him safe. While speaking to India.com about the same during his ongoing promotional stint for Vikrant Rona, Sudeep said:

"I checked on him (Salman Khan). I know this thing about him that if he gets a chance then he will go out alone, he will go out cycling alone. But this is not his decision, it is the responsibility of the people who love him and of the police department to keep him safe. He has lived his life like this. He has lived his life the way he wants to."

For the unversed, Salman Khan's father Salim Khan (former screenwriter) received an anonymous letter on June 5 which carried a threat to harm the two. The letter referred to the recently deceased Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moose Wala (the exact message being "Tumhara Moosewala kar denge" (You'll end up like Moosewala)) which compelled the Mumbai police to look into Lawrence Bishnoi and Gang's involvement in the same. The Maharashtra Home Department later claimed that the gang has been planning on extorting money from big superstars and actors for quite some time and that threatening Salman Khan would boost their notoriety and power.

Bishnoi and Gang are said to be the chief "masterminds" behind the assassination of Sidhu Moosewala: the former had also threatened to kill Salman Khan back in 2018 over the blackbuck case.

Coming back to Kiccha Sudeep, the actor is gearing up for arguably his biggest release to date, Vikrant Rona, which hits the big screens worldwide on July 28. Along with Kannada, Vikrant Rona will be released in multiple Indian and foreign languages in 3D.
