Filmmaker Sajid Nadiadwala, who is a close friend of the actor, is in Jodhpur with Alvira and Arpita.

District and Sessions Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi allowed Khan's plea for bail and suspension of the sentence so that he can file an appeal against his conviction and sentencing.

The actor was convicted by a trial court and sentenced to five years in prison for killing two blackbucks during the shooting of 'Hum Saath Saath Hain' here.
