An unnamed caller reportedly triggered a bomb threat warning for the houses of famous Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Dharmendra, as reported by ETimes (ERSS). TOI reports as the moment the police control centre in Nagpur got the threatening call, they immediately notified their counterparts in Mumbai. According to a senior official quoted in the article, the bomb squad was summoned and searched the actors’ homes. Nevertheless, no results were discovered.
Although Amitabh Bachchan has five homes in Bombay (one each in Janak, Vatsa, Prateeksha, Jalsa, and behind it), he seldom uses them. Dharmendra has a sprawling home in the Juhu neighborhood.
Reports from India.com state that the caller further said that 25 armed men had arrived in Dadar, Mumbai in preparation for the terror strike. The news website further said that the police departments of Juhu, Vile-Parle, and Gamdevi were notified since that is where the two actors live.
Sharing the news on social media, paparazzi Viral Bhayani posted,
