Salim Khan, Salman Khan bahot jald aapka Moosewala hoga.

Translation: “You will soon meet the same fate as Moosewala.” That’s from a one-line note left on a bench on a promenade outside the Khan family residence—which was signed GB and LB. The police say the initials refer to Goldy Brar, and Lawrence Bishnoi—who have claimed responsibility for killing Punjabi rapper Sidhu Moosewala. Security has been increased outside Khan’s home—since an associate of Bishnoi did mention planning to kill Salman back in 2018. But we still can’t figure out why Punjabi gangsters would threaten a Bollywood actor.
