The crank call that shook SRK
Even as Bollywood badshah Shah Rukh Khan was celebrating his 45th birthday in Berlin with his family and close friends, a different sort of drama was unfolding at his bungalow, Mannat, at Bandra Bandstand. The sprawling bungalow became a virtual fortress on Tuesday afternoon, with police personnel cordoning off the area leading to it, following an alert that one of the visitors there would be attacked. All hell broke loose and senior police officers and crime branch teams swooped down and began examining the bouquets and gifts sent to Khan for explosives. They also got police personnel to check the vehicles on the roads. The frenzy began with a call received by the control room at 2. 30pm. The caller told the police that "gutka baron Joshi" was going to be killed at 'Mannat' and that his murder had been ordered by gangster Chhota Shakeel.
