Mumbai: In what came as a major relief to Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, a Jodhpur court Tuesday accepted his plea to produce four witnesses in the arms act case.
The Arms Act case against Salman is an offshoot of the Blackbuck poaching incident 16 years ago near Jodhpur. He was in the area along with his colleagues to shoot for Barjatya's 'Hum Saath-Saath Hain' in 1998.
The 49-year-old actor is currently busy with Sooraj Barjatya's 'Prem Ratan Dhan Payo'.
His other film 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' being directed by 'Ek Tha Tiger' filmmaker Kabir Khan has wrapped up shooting and is currently in post-production stage for a mid-year release.
Prior to the hearing, trade experts had expressed their take on Salman's court cases.
Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta said Salman has approximately Rs 150 crore riding on him for these two films alone, besides another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed.
"If you take Rs 75 crore each for these two films, it comes to a total of Rs 150 crore. And then if you add another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed, it comes to Rs 200 crore. There is some amount of tension but the actor has the option to further appeal his case," Nahta said.
