Transit troubles! UK denies visa to Salman Khan


Actor Salman Khan, who is scheduled to shoot in the UK for his upcoming film ‘Kick’, has not been given visa. His father, Salim Khan, said the visa was denied because some papers related to the court cases against him relating to alleged hunting chinkara and blackbuck in Rajasthan during the shoot of ‘Hum Saath Saath Hain’ in 1998 did not reach here in time. Salman was convicted in two cases and was handed sentence of five years in one case and a year in the other. He has appealed in the High Court against both the sentences. “The visa was denied to him because some papers from Jodhpur were not there…the papers had not come. All this has happened because of technical glitch,” Salim Khan told. He will again apply for the visa next week, Khan said. The actor is also being tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder in a hit-and-run case in Mumbai.
