Early on Wednesday, Sona tweeted a screenshot of threat and wrote: “Such & such mails come my way regularly , from the followers of this ‘hero’ of bad behaviour. This beacon of ‘human’ values who inspires such serial toxic behaviour is actually claiming the title of #Bharat , drawing parallels with our great nation, nothing lesser. @NCWIndia.”

 In the picture, the text is clearly visible and it reads: “...about Salman Khan from from bloody f***king mouth,i will get into your house and kill you.Its the 1st and final warning you s**t.”

Sona attacked Salman after he made a few disparaging comments on Priyanka Chopra, who left his film Bharat to get married. Not taking kindly to his comments, Sona had put out a series of tweets, slamming Salman. She wrote: “Cus @priyankachopra has better things to do in life, real men to hang out with & more importantly, girls to inspire with her journey.” Calling Salman, the poster child of toxic masculinity, she again wrote: “A showcase & poster child of toxic masculinity. Low brow dig at not only a woman who was not in the room but a disgusting disregard & contempt for the woman & colleague sitting next to him in the same room. Unless we call out such serial bad behaviour, nothing changes, #India .”
