CAPTAIN Salman at the take-off of Flight Bigg Boss 8 - 4

Film on Black Buck case whose verdict is expected on Feb 25, rolls today.


On February 17, 2006, Salman Khan was sentenced to a year in prison for hunting two Chinkaras at Bhawad and a Black Buck at Ghoda Farm in Rajasthan. The sentence was stayed by a higher court following an appeal.


On April 10, the actor was handed a five-year-jail term. He was remanded to Jodhpur jail until April 13, before he was granted bail. During his 72-hour stay in prison, he was identified as ‘Quaidi No. 210‘ and shared a cell with Mahesh Saini.


Today, Saini will make his acting debut, playing himself, in Ranjeet Sharma’s film, Quaidi No. 210. The film which chronicles the Black Buck case rolls in Filmistan Studio today. They will also shoot in Jodhpur Central Jail later this month.


“I’ve signed Salman’s driver, Harish Dhulani, and we will be using the same Gypsy he drove during the shikaar,” says Ranjeet.


He has been closely following the case over the last decade and is not worried about any roadblocks. “I’m a resident of Jodhpur, my paperwork is in order and I’ve taken all the necessary permissions. We will be shooting the courtroom scene on February 25, the day Salman’s verdict is expected,” he says.


The 49-year old actor who is filming Sooraj Barjatya’s Prem Ratan Dhan Payo in Karjat, will be flying to Jodhpur for the final hearing on the case.

“Usmaan Khan who looks a lot like Salman will play him. Ranjeet says,”I love Salman. The film will not portray him in a bad light.”
