Rajasthan High Court reprieve for Salman Khan

Zeenews Bureau

Mumbai: In a huge relief to Bollywood actor Salman Khan, the Rajasthan High Court has ruled that the hunk of an actor can travel abroad without a prior permission from the court.

Apparently, from 1998 till date; he has submitted around one hundred and eight applications to the court to travel abroad. And all these applications were duly granted permission.

Talking to a daily, a source said, “The Rajasthan High Court issued an order on Monday removing the condition for Salman Khan to seek court’s permission before going abroad. He is fighting a case under Arm’s Act registered against him at the Loni police station,”

The case registered against Salman is non-bailable and the actor is still fighting it in the court.

“Justice Sandeep Mehta gave the verdict while hearing a petition which sought freedom to go abroad without a prior permission from the court. Salman’s lawyer put forward the argument that since he is a film actor, he needs to frequently go abroad for the shootings of his films. The lawyers also argued that seeking the court’s permission each time becomes too tiresome and time consuming. We are glad that the Court allowed our plea,” revealed the source.

Salman’s latest release ‘Bodyguard’ has broken all Box Office records. Buzz has it that Salman will be charging anything around Rs 30 crore for each film.

“Salman was paid Rs. 20 crore for his last film (‘Dabangg’). He will get paid at least 10 crore more per film now. His market prices have swelled beyond actor Shah Rukh Khan. Since Aamir does only one films per year, we don’t know about him,” the source added.
