Bollywood bad boy Salman Khan will not be replaced in his new movie project despite being jailed for five years.
Producer Boney Kapoor has refused to cast a new actor for his movie Wanted Dead + Alive and insists he will wait for Khan to be released from prison.
The actor has been jailed for killing an endangered species while shooting a film in India's Rajasthan state in 1998.
Boney says, "The sentence isn't a bolt from the blue. I wanted only Salman for this role, and given a chance I'd still not change my decision to have him.
"These things happen. I won't let it bog me down. We all need to stand by Salman. I'm sure my film will be completed. But right now there are bigger issues."
