On April 5, a Jodhpur court convicted Salman Khan in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case for 5 years. The verdict seemed like a major set back for the actor as he had a number of big-budget films in the pipeline. He managed to secure bail on April 7.
At the trailer launch of his upcoming film, Race 3 on Tuesday, a reporter asked Khan whether he was worried or under pressure after the verdict since the film's release was around the corner. The reporter wasn't allowed to finish the question since it involved Khan's court case, yet he persisted.
The person hosting the event interrupted the journalist to say, "You don't want to go into that bro," even as Khan smiled and looked on. "That's the only reason I get paid to stand here," the host said. "Send the mic back, send the mic back," he went on adding, "If it's Jodhpur, no. If it's Karnataka elections. No? Race 3? Yes."
When the journalist said that the question was about the film, he was allowed to finish. He asked Khan, "Did that put pressure on you considering a lot of money was riding on the film?" to which Khan smirked and said, "Do you think I was gonna go forever? When the journalist said, "No," Khan said, "Thank you, I was worried," with a hint of sarcasm.
