Irked by the reports on TV media about a murder plot to kill him, actor Yash has said that there is no such threat to his life and requested people not to spread such news on social media and electronic media.

After CCB police arrested four rowdy sheeters recently, rumours on social media and in some TV channels surfaced that rowdy Bharat aka Slum Bharat had received 'supari' (contract) to kill Yash. To clear the air, the Kannada actor hurriendly called a press meet on Saturday, 9 March, and stated that there was no truth in the reports.

"Everytime cops nab anti-social elements, my name surfaces in media claiming that they were planning to kill me. I am not a lamb to slaughter. I am well aware of my strength. I am personal hurt and my fans and family are worried to see such reports. I request media not to air such news. I am not sure from where they are getting those information and if they have credible information about such plans, they should provide it to the cops, who can bring them to book," he said.

Yash claimed that he has already spoken to Karnataka Home Minister MB Patil and DGP Alok Sharma and got assurance that there was no such threat from anyone for him.

Some reports had indicated that his rivals were plotting him to kill him following his rise in film industry. Reacting to it, the Rocking Star said, "We have a healthy competition in Sandalwood, but I am sure nobody would stoop low to an extent of eliminating anyone. Such news send wrong message to the public about our industry," he added.

Yash admitted that two years ago there was a minor incident where some miscreants had pelted stones on his car and he had brought it to the notice of the cops. Since then, there has not been any such incidents, according to the actor. It has to be noted that he had filed a complaint stating that he received threatening calls. 

Meanwhile, Yash, after the massive success of his KGF: 1 Chapter, he is getting ready for the second instalment of the movie.
