Salman Khan was spotted twice yesterday, once at the much-awaited trailer launch of his upcoming release Race 3 in Bandra, Mumbai and second, when in the evening the entire star cast got together to celebrate at Ramesh Taurani’s place

At the trailer launch, Salman Khan was asked by a journalist whether he was worried about the money riding on him while he was caught up in the court proceedings in the 1998 blackbuck poaching case. Salman took the journalist by a surprise and counter-questioned: "Did you think I was going to go in forever?" 

As the journalist replied "No", Salman promptly said: "Thank you, because I was not worried."

The journalist merely voiced the concern of many who wondered what would happen after Salman Khan was convicted in the blackbuck case and was jailed in Jodhpur Central jail for two days before he got released on bail. It was speculated that more than Rs 500 crores are riding on him this year. Salman was accused of hunting and killing blackbucks in Rajasthan in 1998 when he was filming for Hum Saath Saath Hain. 

The trailer launch was attended by other actors of the film like Anil Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Saqib Saleem along with director Remo D' Souza and producer Ramesh Taurani.
