Pujari was the same don who had threatened Wadia Group officials in connection with Preity Zinta-Ness Wadia assault case.

It was reported that security around Shahrukh's bungalow in Mumbai -- Mannat has been tightened following the threat from the don. However, source close to the actor was quoted as saying, "Shah Rukh has not got any such calls. We wonder why such rumours are being spread."
Meanwhile, Mumbai Police too overruled such reports saying, "He has been given police protection for a long time now. So why is there so much of talk about it?"
