With Rs 200 crore riding on Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, the deferment of the Arms Act case verdict till March 3 has provided a small window of relief to producers of his two films that are set to release this year.

The 49-year-old actor is currently in Gondal near Rajkot, Gujarat for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’.

His other film ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ being directed by ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ helmer Kabir Khan has wrapped up shooting and is currently in post production stage for a mid-year release.

Bollywood trade analyst Komal Nahta said Salman has approximately Rs 150 crore riding on him for these two films alone, besides another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed.

“If you take Rs 75 crore each for these two films, it comes to a total of Rs 150 crore. And then if you add another Rs 50 crore for the projects that he has signed, it comes to Rs 200 crore. There is some amount of tension but the actor has the option to further appeal his case,” Nahta told PTI.

The Arms Act case against Salman is an offshoot of the Blackbuck poaching incident 16 years ago near Jodhpur.
