In March, the Jodhpur High Court had passed a fresh notice to these actors involved with the case. The move essentially challenges their acquittal in the matter for which only Salman Khan was convicted.

In September 2018, it was reported that the state government intended to appeal before the Jodhpur High Court against the exoneration of the four co-accused. Officials said that along with them, the appeal will also request that Dinesh Gawre, who was also charged in the case and is missing for a long time, be tried as an accused.

As reported earlier, the reason behind the acquittal of the other stars may be because of the difficulty in furnishing any evidence linking Saif, Sonali, Neelam and Tabu to the killing of the blackbucks. While their Hum Sath-Sath Hai co-star Salman Khan was booked for killing an endangered species, the rest were charged with unlawful assembly.

Would Katrina Kaif get to dance on 'Tip Tip Barsa Pani' when she's Akshay Kumar's age? Ask Raveena Tandon

The original version of 'Tip Tip Barsa Pani' has Raveena Tandon, who contributed significantly in making the song what it is — a steamy blockbuster that has stayed relevant enough to be remade 27 years later, in Sooryavanshi with Katrina Kaif. If Akshay Kumar can dance to the same song at 54, why can’t Tandon, who is seven years younger than him?
