Salman Khan's infamous Black Buck shooting case, for which the superstar was in prison for 72 hours, is being portrayed in a film titled "Quaidi No.210".
The film produced by Ranjeet Sharma went on floors this week, with newcomer and Salman's look-alike Usmaan Khan playing the lead role.
Moreover, Salman's cellmate Mahesh Saini, will be making his acting debut and will be seen playing himself in the film. Salman's driver Harish Dhulani has also been roped in the film and the Gypsy, driven by Salman during his hunt, will be used in the film.
Interestingly, the makers of the film are also bringing in newcomers who would play Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Katrina Kaif (Salman's rumoured ex-girlfriends).
With the makers' effort in bringing a real touch to the film, it appears like the female newcomers will also have resemblance to Aishwarya and Kaif much like Salman's look-alike Usmaan.
Earlier, actresses Sneha Ullal and Zarine Khan (both launched by Salman) created huge buzz in the film industry owing to their strong resemblance to Aishwarya and Kaif respectively.
"It's not a biopic so I don't need his permission. Usmaan Khan who looks a lot like Salman will play him. I'll be signing two newcomers to play Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif. I love Salman. The film will not portray him in a bad light." Mumbai Mirror quoted the filmmaker as saying in an interview.
"The film begins with Mumbai and ends in Jodhpur. Sometimes, being human is a crime if you are celebrity. Anything you do touches headlines. We are touching upon that Salman who believes in being human," editor-turned-director Prakash Jha told IANS.
On 17 February 2006, Salman was sentenced to one-year imprisonment for hunting two Chinkaras at Bhawad and a Black Buck at Ghoda Farm in Rajasthan. The sentence, however, was put on hold by the higher court following an appeal. But on 10 April 2006, the actor was handed a five-year jail term where he served until 13 April, before being granted bail.
The verdict of the Black Buck Shooting case is expected on 25 February.
