It is good news for Salman Khan fans as the actor is now granted a visit to Malta and Saudi Arabia in August and September respectively. The 'Kick' actor is all set to shoot for Ali Abbas Zafar directorial 'Bharat' and the actor's defence plea is now granted by the supreme court judge Songara.
The 52-year old Khan will have to take permission from court every time he travels abroad. Things got worst for Salman Khan as a lower Jodhpur court earlier sentenced him to five years in jail for killing two blackbucks 20 years ago in Kankani village in Jodhpur in 1998. He was subsequently granted bail. A Jodhpur court is now hearing the Bollywood star's plea against the conviction.
The actor's counsel, Mahesh Bora, had moved an application before District and Sessions Judge Chandra Kumar Songara on Friday, seeking to exempt Khan from taking permission before travelling out of India. But Public Prosecutor Pokar Ram Bishnoi said that since the arguments before the court have already begun, it would not be appropriate to grant Khan permanent exemption from seeking such permission. Bora withdrew the application after the court asked him why Khan had a problem in seeking permission every time.
However, Judge Songara granted Khan permission to visit Malta and Saudi Arabia in August and September for shooting assignments.
