A court on Wednesday declined a plea by Bollywood actor Salman Khan to adjourn for three weeks the recording of his statement in the 2002 hit-and-run case, due to start on March 27. Sessions Judge D.W. Deshpande ordered Salman Khan to remain present in the court Friday when his statement, under Section 313 of the Criminal Procedure Code, will be recorded in his retrial for the September 28, 2002, accident in which he ran over pavement dwellers outside a bakery near the actor's home in suburban Bandra. One person was killed and four others were injured. The actor's plea for adjournment came on grounds that his presence was required in a court in Rajasthan's Jodhpur where he is accused of illegal possession and use of arms in poaching a blackbuck. Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat strongly opposed the plea for adjournment filed by Salman Khan's lawyer Shrikant Shivade on grounds that the hit-and-run case should be given priority as it is conducted on a day-to-day basis and its programme was fixed by the Mumbai court before the Jodhpur court schedules were finalised. Gharat also informed the court that it had closed the evidence in the case and placed on record three photographs of the vehicle involved in the accident. From Friday, the actor's statement will be recorded in which he will be able to put his side of the story.

Filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj, who has dedicated the five National Film Awards that his film "Haider" has bagged, to Kashmiri Pandits, has left veteran actor Anupam Kher irked. "Haider", based on William Shakespeare's play "Hamlet", was set against the backdrop of insurgency of Kashmir. He was blamed for showing only one side of the Valley, but he has defended himself by saying that he removed the representation of Kashmiri Pandits in the film as he felt the tragedy was too big to be summed up in a minor piece. "I dedicate my (all five National) awards to them (Kashmiri Pandits) because I feel their tragedy was very big and a complete film should have been made on them. “If we would have added just a small piece based on them in the film, then it would have been unfair," Bhardwaj, said here Tuesday after a bouquet of five National Film Awards was announced for the movie. Bhardwaj says he would make a complete film someday to show the plight of Kashmiri Pandits."A complete film should have been made on them and I may make it someday," the filmmaker said. Meanwhile, veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher, a Kashmiri Pandit, seems to be unhappy with Vishal Bhardwaj's attempt to appease the Kashmiri Pandits and termed it "fraudish".
