The infamous Black Buck poaching case has been filed against superstar Salman Khan and other actors since 1998 during the shoot of Sooraj Barjatya‘s family drama ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’. Last year, Salman Khan was sentenced to five-year imprisonment but after spending a night in the jail, he was granted bail by the court.

The Dabangg Khan had gone on to appeal against the verdict, the hearing for the same was to be held today. But due to the busy schedule of the court, the hearing has been postponed. The CJM Rural Court has decided to push the date for the Salman Khan blackbuck poaching case which will now be heard two months later and the same was confirmed by advocate Sushma Dhara in recent reports.

Not only Salman Khan but even Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam were expected to have accompanied the actor in the vehicle that was used for poaching. Considering that they were present during the act, plea was filed against them by the Bishnoi community. The hearing for the same has been pushed further too.

Salman Khan had also pleaded the government to acquit him from the charges of illegal possession of arms and ammunition. The case was expected to be heard by Chandra Kumar Sonagara. But now the hearing for all the three cases will be held on April 3.

On the work front, Salman Khan is busy with the shoot of ‘Bharat’. This is his third collaboration with director Ali Abbas Zafar after ‘Tiger Zinda Hai‘ and ‘Sultan’. The movie also features Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Tabu, Nora Fatehi and Jackie Shroff in pivotal roles. The movie will be releasing on Eid this year.
