Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will resume shooting for Bajrangi Bhaijaan in Kashmir today, a day after Bombay High Court suspended his five-year sentence after he was convicted by a sessions court in 2002 hit-and-run case.
According to reports, the shoot of Kabir Khan's directorial venture 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' is in its last stage. The trailer of the film that also stars Kareena Kapoor Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui is scheduled to release on May 23. The film is slated for release on July 17.
As per the reports, after completing 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan', the actor will go back to shooting of Sooraj Barjatya's film 'Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo'. More than half of the shooting of this film has also completed.
Yesterday evening, Khan furninshed a bond of Rs 30,000 as directed by High Court and went back home. Several Bollywood personalities visited him at his residence Galaxy Apartments in Bandra suburban area of Mumbai.
During hearing of Salman's bail plea, Justice Abhay Thipsay observed, "This is not a case where I should keep him (Khan) in jail till his appeal is heard and decided. Why his right should suffer when his appeal is admitted and kept pending? In many cases people have suffered and spent their entire prison term only to be acquitted later by the High Court."
Justice Thipsay had granted interim bail to 49-year-old Khan hours after his conviction and sentencing by sessions court judge D W Deshpande on Wednesday.
A man was killed and four others were wounded when Khan's Toyota Land Cruiser ran over them while they were asleep on a pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra on September 28, 2002.
