The Dabangg 2 actor says he might be in the Jodhpur court on his big day, with regards to the 1998 poaching case against him
Actor Salman Khan, who gave Bollywood a blockbuster with Ek Tha Tiger this year and will hopefully repeat the success with the forthcoming release Dabangg 2, says he might be in court on his 47th birthday on December 27 in a 2007 hit-and-run case.
“On December 27, I am not doing anything. I am not very sure what I am doing that day. On my birthday, I myself might be in court,” Salman told IANS.
Salman, who has been summoned by a Jodhpur court to appear before it in February in connection with a 1998 poaching case, says he might have a date with the Mumbai court regarding the hit-and-run case. “I think they have asked me to come on December 27, but if the lawyers say I don’t need to go, then I won’t go and if the lawyers say, I have to then I will definitely go,” he said.
While many A-list actors including Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan and Hrithik Roshan celebrate their birthdays in the presence of the media, Salman says it is something he will never do. “It will never happen. Woh fraudgiri mujhse nahi hogi (I can’t do that fraud with anyone). I can’t do that and I am telling this very frankly – when the media is standing outside my house, with OB vans and all, my mother will make sure that their party happens outside. Not for any other reason, but if the media is there in the party, then the guests get very uncomfortable. So nobody will be able to have a good time and within five minutes, everybody would want to leave,” he said.
