Cloud looms over Salman's participation in overseas stage show
New Delhi, Apr 16 (UNI) He is finally out on bail after spending three nights in Jodhpur jail but cinestar Salman Khan's participation in an overseas stage show, where he is to appear at the end of this month end remains under, a cloud.
Salman Khan is scheduled to accompany a galaxy of stars, including Akshay Kumar, John Abraham, Kareena Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Esha Deol, Preity Zinta, Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan and Mallika Sherawat to North America at the end of this month for a world tour.
Trade sources said the show, being organised by Cineyug's Morani brothers, has Salman as its main draw and though it could still go on without his presence, it would lose much of its fizz considering the huge draw that Salman is in the overseas territories. With Salman having been granted bail, the Morani brothers - Ali, Karim and Mohammed - are confident that the cinestar would be able to participate in the show.
Their confidence stems from the fact that Salman's lawyers, in their application to the court, had requested it to grant permission to him to travel abroad for the show, a plea they feel is likely to be accepted by the court.
With the first show scheduled in Calgary, Canada, on April 21, the Moranis feel that the lawyers would be able to obtain the court's permission by that time. "Whatever happens, the show will and must go on. We were to leave on April 17. Instead of that, we might have to postpone the departure for a day and go on April 19.
The first show is in Calgary, Canada, on April 21,'' Ali Morani said.
Asked what would happen if Salman was not allowed to go, they said,''let's treat it positively and take it as it happens. I don't want to talk or think negatively on lines of 'what if Salman can't make it..' The show will go on irrespective of what happens." UNI AR PK PC1150
