MUMBAI – Superstar Salman Khan on Wednesday released the first poster of his much awaited movie “Tubelight” directed by Kabir Khan, the Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

The 51-year-old actor took to social media to unveil the poster.

“Kya tumhe yakeen hai? Agar tumhe yakeen hai then ‘Back his Back’,” he wrote alongside the poster, which features a back shot of a man.

In the picture the actor is seen wearing a blazer, a cap and holding a sling bag.

The catch line of the poster is “Kya Tumhe Yakeen Hai”.

The makers had released a small teaser of the film on Tuesday featuring a chorus in the voice of kids.

The movie marks the third collaboration between Salman and Kabir, who have previously worked together in “Ek Tha Tiger” and “Bajrangi Bhaijaan”. “Tubelight,” which also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, will hit the theatres on Eid.

NEW DELHI – A court in the Indian state of Rajasthan acquitted Bollywood superstar Salman Khan in an illegal arms case on Wednesday, according to the actor’s lawyer, Turkey’s Anadolu Agency (AA) reported.

Chief Judicial Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpuroti in Jodhpur city gave Khan the “benefit of doubt” and quashed the case.

“The prosecution has failed to provide conclusive evidence,” H.S. Saraswat, who is Khan’s lawyer, said.

Mumbai (AFP) – Indian police on Wednesday charged controversial Bollywood superstar Salman Khan’s bodyguard for illegal possession of a firearm and assaulting a waiter at a pub, an officer said.

Gurmeet Singh Jolly, who goes by the name Shera, allegedly hit the waiter with the butt of a pistol during a verbal tiff at a bar in India’s financial capital, Mumbai.

Police charged Shera with assault after receiving a complaint from the victim who sustained injuries, police said.

“Shera has been charged… for possession of weapons and hitting the victim with a baton and the butt of a pistol before fleeing the spot,” Mumbai Police spokesperson Ashok Dudhe told AFP.

Shera has worked with Khan for nearly 20 years and is known to be a close confidante of the superstar, who is himself embroiled in a string of legal cases.

Although Khan was cleared last year of killing a homeless man in a late-night hit-and-run crash in 2002, that decision is now being challenged in the Supreme Court.

NEW DELHI: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was forced to eat humble pie over his alleged controversial tweets on the mastermind behind
the 1993 bomb blasts in Mumbai which killed 257 people and critically injured 1,400.

He retracted the tweets, offered an unconditional apology and stated that he had never intended to imply that 1993 Mumbai blasts case convict Yakub Memon was innocent.

In his series of tweets early Sunday, Salman Khan had defended Yakub who is scheduled to be hanged on July 30 after having exhausted all his appeals.

The 49-year-old actor claimed that Yakub was an innocent man and it was Yakub’s brother, known as Tiger Memon, who should face the gallows for his role in the 1993 blasts.

In the tweet, Salman Khan had allegedly described Tiger Memon as a “wolf” hiding in Pakistan and wanted the Pakistani government to confirm it.

Supporters of political parties headed by BJP and its radical wing RSS, upset over Salman Khan’s outburst that the government did not do enough to bring

Tiger Memon to justice, staged a protest in front of his luxury apartment in Mumbai.

It was Salman Khan’s father, Salim Khan, who initially attempted to do damage control by saying that his son was “ignorant” in the matter.

He (Salim Khan) told ‘Times Now’, a leading news channel in Mumbai that whatever was written by Salman Khan was meaningless and he did not support it and Salman Khan was wrong in the matter.

Over the past few days, there has been a raging debate in the local media in India whether Yakub should be hanged as scheduled.

Some sympathisers claim that Yakub, a chartered accountant, was never involved in the 1993 bombings.

However, he was arrested and convicted for criminal conspiracy, arranging money for buying vehicles used by the bombers and organising air tickets to Dubai for some of the conspirators.

Yakub’s mercy petition to the Maharashtra governor was dismissed and, recently, he approached the Supreme Court afresh to stay his execution.

If his plea is dismissed, he will be hanged at the Nagpur Central Jail on July 30. — BERNAMA

MUMBAI – Bollywood actress Jacqueline Fernandez has credited her ‘Kick’ co-star Salman Khan for having one million fans on Twitter, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

The 29-year-old Sri Lankan beauty joined the micro-blogging site in 2009.

“1 million finally on twitter!!! I owe this one to Salman Khan,” she tweeted.

Fernandez made her acting debut in the 2009 Bollywood fantasy movie ‘Aladin’ opposite Amitabh Bachchan and Ritesh Deshmukh, followed by ‘Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai’ and ‘Murder 2’.

But her stint as a psychiatrist in the Salman-starrer ‘Kick’ won her huge acclaim as an actress.

The winner of the 2006 Miss Sri Lanka Universe pageant will be seen next in the upcoming action thriller ‘Roy’. – Bernama
