Police security have been provided at the office and residence of Bollywood filmmaker Ram Gopal Varma after he received a threat, the police said in Mumbai on Friday.
However, the police chose to remain silent about details like who threatened him and what sort of threat was issued to him. "On the basis of an intercepted conversation, the Mumbai police gave me security for various reasons. I cannot divulge the content of the threat. For some important reasons, I cannot comment on whether or not this threat to me is related to the content of Satya 2," Varma tweeted on Friday.
When contacted by PTI, Additional Police Commissioner (West Region) Vishwas Nagare Patil said, "I would not be displaying professionalism if I talk about somebody receiving a threat. I would not like to comment anything on the matter".
Varma's Satya 2, which was originally scheduled to release on Friday, would now be released on November 8.
