Vikram’s House Receives Fake Bomb Threat

Vikram Promotes 'Mister KK'

Early on Monday, an anonymous person sent a bomb threat to actor Vikram’s house in Besant Nagar, Chennai. The Chennai police subsequently conducted a search and found it to be a hoax.


After receiving a call from an anonymous person, the police control room contacted the Thiruvanmiyur police station. Speaking to Silverscreen India, Inspector Ramasundaram of the Thiruvanmiyur police station said that within five minutes, the police had alerted the bomb squad and gone to Vikram’s house to conduct a search. After investigating the premises, the police concluded that the call was a hoax.

According to Ramasundaram, the police are currently trying to trace the culprit behind the phone call. India Today reports that the call received by the control room had been traced back to Villupuram.

Recently, there has been an increase in the number of bomb threats made to persons in the Tamil film industry.

Last month, the Chennai police received two calls from the same unknown person claiming that a bomb had been planted at the residences of actor Dhanush and actor-politician Vijayakanth. The person had called the Chennai Police control room in the morning and told them about the bomb at Vijayakanth’s house. He then called three hours later claiming that another bomb had been planted at Dhanush’s house in Teynampet. However, upon investigation, it was found that the calls were a hoax.


In June, a class VII student from Nellikuppam had called the Chennai police and claimed that bombs had been planted at actor Rajinikanth’s residence. Four months ago, the student had made two calls and claimed that a bomb has been planted at actor Suriya’s residence.

It was later found that the person who had made the calls was suffering from a mental health disorder. The person was released with only a warning. According to India Today, the police suspect that the person behind Vikram’s bomb threat could be the same person who was responsible for the earlier incidents.
