A Jodhpur court sentenced Bollywood superstar Salman Khan to a five-year jail term in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case, while other actors — Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari — have been acquitted. The Bishnoi Sabha, a community committed to protecting the blackbucks, has decided to appeal against other acquittals. Salman Khan was accused of killing two blackbucks in Bhagoda ki Dhani in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the intervening night of October 1-2, 1998, during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain.

As Salman Khan’s bail plea will be heard by the Sessions Court at 10:30am on Friday morning, arrangements were been made to house the Dabangg actor in the Jodhpur jail, which houses several other high-profile convicts as well, including Asaram Bapu.
Trade analyst Komal Nahta said that there is not much involvement of money in Salman’s Dabangg 3, Kick 2 and Bharat as they all are in pre-production stage and his team has only announced those projects, but Race 3 will definitely have to face the consequences with his conviction.
They came together to shoot – a film. They allegedly then went together to shoot - the blackbuck. But in the end, while Salman gets ready to spend a night in Jodhpur jail, the rest of the ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ team are hopping on to the next flight out of the town.
