Jodhpur: Bollywood superstar Salman Khan will no longer be required to seek permission from the court every time he travels abroad as a sessions court on Wednesday granted an application moved by him in this regard, reports news agency Press Trust of India.
The sessions court is hearing the appeal against a five-year sentence to Salman in a poaching case.
“We had moved an application seeking permanent exemption for Khan from taking permission of the court every time he has to travel abroad. The court allowed the application,” said the actor’s counsel Hastimal Saraswat.
But Salman will have to provide detailed information about his journey to the court before embarking on any such journey. “He will have to keep the court informed of any such plans before leaving the country like the dates, the location and the stay,” Saraswat said.
A similar application was moved by the defence seeking modification in a condition in the bail order that Salman will have to take permission every time he has to travel abroad.
“But that application was withdrawn by us and a fresh application moved, which was allowed by the court,” Saraswat said.
The arguments on the appeal against sentence could not take place in the sessions court on account of shortage of time. The same, however, will take place on Thursday.
Salman, who recently launched the twelfth season of his blockbuster TV reality show Bigg Boss, will soon leave for Abu Dhabi to begin the next shooting schedule of his upcoming film Bharat.
Bharat, an Ali Abbas Zafar directorial, also stars Katrina Kaif, Disha Patani, Jackie Shroff and Tabu in significant roles. The film, produced by Reel Life Productions, T-Series Films and Salman Khan Films, is slated to hit the screens on Eid next year.
