Actor Salman Khan has become the first prominent Bollywood personality to support yesteryear style icon Sadhana, who has alleged harassment by a builder.

"Who is this builder who is making Sadhana aunty's life miserable, threatening her that he will cut her to bits and nobody is doing anything about it," Salman tweeted.

"And you believe that in this day and age, this kind of stuff happens in our country where a living legend's life is hell," the actor said, adding that 'janta' (mass) support was needed to protect the actress, whose 'Sadhana fringe', modelled after Audrey Hepburn's, became a rage in the 60s.

The 69-year old Sadhana Shivdasani, who has been living away from industry and media glare for decades, has sought police protection claiming stones were being pelted at her Santacruz residence three weeks after she lodged a complaint against a builder accusing him of forcing her to vacate her 3,000 sq ft residence where she is living for over four decades.

SalmanAccording to Santacruz police, she alleged that the builder, Yousuf Lakdawala, threatened her saying she would be killed and her body parts would not be found after her murder.

Last week, the actress met the Police Commissioner Sanjeev Dayal.

Sadhana stays on the ground floor of the two-storeyed 'Sangeeta' bungalow owned by singer Asha Bhosle while Lakdawala stays on the second floor, police said.
