But on December 4, the panic outside Salman's house was different and unreal -- a bomb threat. The actor resides in Galaxy Apartments in Bandra. As per reports, Mumbai Police received an email threatening to blow up Salman Khan's house in 'two hours'. The officials were quick to respond to the situation, reaching Salman's house for evacuation. The actor was not present at his residence but his family members were there.
