Salman Khan’s UK visa refused due to conviction in poaching cases

Salman Khan has been refused a visa to shoot for his upcoming flick Kick, directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, in Britain. Salman Khan was meant to have started filming his scenes last week; the entire film unit is already in Britain. No reason was given, but sources say the visa was refused because the British rules bar entry for anybody charged in any court of an offense. Salman Khan has been in prison for killing chinkara in 2 pending poaching cases.
