Salman Khan’s lawyer claims he is getting death threat from international gangster

It has only been few days since Salman Khan was acquitted from the Arms Act case after 18 years. Last week, Salman and his Hum Saath Saath Hain co-stars were ordered to appear in front of Jodhpur court in Rajasthan to record their statements regarding the Blackbuck poaching case. Salman Khan pled not guilty in front of the court.

Now, it has been learned that Salman Khan’s defense counsel, who is representing him in the blackbuck poaching case, has claimed that he has received a death threat from an international gangster for acquitting Salman in the case. Salman’s lawyer HM Saraswat said that he had received a phone call two days ago from a person who identified himself as an international gangster. According to the lawyer, the gangster allegedly threatened Saraswat for getting Khan acquitted in the Arms Act case, saying he was not happy with it.

Saraswat further revealed that the caller even warned him to be ready to face dire consequences and no one can save him. After the call, he filed a complaint with the police and he has been provided with armed security. Police Commissioner Ashok Rathore said that armed policeman have been provided for the lawyer’s security and the investigation has been started.

HM Saraswat further said that the caller aka the international gangster had allegedly also called Salman Khan demanding protection money from him. But the actor refused to do so. As for Salman Khan, the next hearing for the poaching case will be in February.

Is Kaabil Hrithik Roshan’s own Koshish?

In 1972 Gulzar made Koshish, a film about a deaf and mute couple played by Sanjeev Kumar and Jaya Bhaduri, finding happiness with each other until death do they part. Likewise in Kaabil, Hrithik Roshan is a visually impaired man besotted by his wife Yami Gautam, also blind, until she is killed.

Sanjeev Kumar’s performance had fetched him the National award for best actor. Hrithik’s performance too is worthy of a National award. He baulks and blushes at the compliment. “My God that’s too much to even consider. When people say this is the first time in Indian cinema that a movie has depicted a love story between two blind people and that has never been done in the history of our industry, I feel elated.”

The box office figures are showing an upward trend. On Wednesday when Kaabil opened it displayed an increase of 40 percent box office collection from the morning shows to the evening.

As the enthusiastic encomiums pour in from all ends praising Hrithik Roshan’s performance to the skies, it becomes apparent that Kaabil is poised for a successful innings. Says Hrithik happily, “More than box office numbers it is the appreciation that overwhelms me. Like I tell my sons, the gold is not important, but running and giving it your very best is crucial and imperative. Not giving it your best is the failure. Today Kaabil my third baby is running at its very best!”

Giving his best shot to every film is important to Hrithik. “Doing good work is extremely important to me. I am proud of the appreciation we are receiving. Numbers will follow. I’ll do whatever it takes to make my films as. It’s my joy. My hard work makes me a better person. It always keeps me humble to my vision because the vision is always bigger and greater than me.”

As for Kaabil, being his best Hrithik asserts, “There is no best in creativity. It’s so subjective. There is only the goal to do full justice to the script and vision. If you ask me my favourite performances from my own repertoire I’d say, none. Whenever I look back at my favourite it turns out not as good as I thought. I keep desiring that one performance which will last as a favourite. None have so far. Maybe Rohan Bhatnagar in Kaabil might. You’ll have to check with me 2 years later again though.”

What appealed to Hrithik Roshan was that the love story in Kaabil had never been tried before. “The uniqueness of the concept grabbed my undivided attention. I love doing concept films which are potentially path breaking.”
