About 3 years back, Karan Johar was reportedly receiving death threats and was being given a 24/7 security cover. And now, once again, the filmmaker has reinstated for the security as the threats resurfaced. The head honcho of Dharma Productions has been receiving these threats for the past one month and hence was given some armed security for protection. However, the case was later transferred to an anti extortion cell of the Mumbai cell brand and it was being said that the threats were from a wanted gangster. And recently, the director-producer appealed for a 24 hour security cover to the Protection and Security Branch of Mumbai. The police have refused to divulge any more details owing to security reasons and confidentiality.
