Web Desk: Salman Khan’s infamous 1998 blackbuck poaching case was delivered by Jodhpur Court on Thursday. Salman was charged under Indian’s Section 51 of the Wildfire (Protection) Act for killing two blackbucks in Jodhpur’s KanKani village, during the shoot of Sooraj Barjatya’s Hum Saath Saath Hain.
While Salman Khan was convicted in the long-pending case, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bedra, Tabu and Neelum were acquitted.
Reportedly, in 1998, Salman Khan had hunted blacksbucks in Jodhpur, as a result of which a complaint was filed against him by the people of Bishnoi. Bhaijan was then arrested but was granted a bail five days later.
In 2009, Salman revealed his side of story and quoted, “We (he and his co-stars) saw a deer stuck in a bush. The whole herd was there. It was a fawn and was petrified. I took him out of there. We then gave him some water. The deer ate some biscuits and later went back in the forest.”
Here is a list of Salman’s movies which might be in jeopardy due to the verdict.
This is the third installment in the Race franchise. Salman Khan was in the lead role. Race 3 is bankrolled by Salman’s production house SKF Films and Ramesh Taurani under the banner of Tips Films. It is scheduled to release on June 15.
Salman starring movie Bharat, is still in the pre-production stage and will only go on the floor in June 2018 after Salman is done with the shooting of Race 3. It is expected to be released on Eid 2019.
It is the third installment in the Dabangg Franchise. The movie will see Salman reprising the role of inspector Chulbul Pandey. Dabangg 3 will be produced by Arbaaz Khan. The shooting of the movie has not yet started.
