Also, filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala announced a sequel to his superhit film 'Kick' this year. The superstar has been found guilty of killing the blackbucks, from the antelope family, in Kankani village near Jodhpur on the night of October 1, 1998, during the shooting of the film 'Hum Saath Saath Hain', reportedly.
