JODH­PUR: Bol­ly­wood star Sal­man Khan was sur­prised when a judge in Jodh­pur asked him on Wed­nes­day about his caste. But the ac­tor quickly gath­ered his wits and replied that he was both “Hindu and Mus­lim”.

Khan also told chief ju­di­cial mag­is­trate Anu­pama Bi­jlani that he had been framed in a case reg­is­tered against him un­der the Arms Act over the shoot­ing of some en­dan­gered an­i­mals in 1998. The ac­tor ap­peared in the court to record his state­ment in the case. As part of the process, Khan was re­quired to an­swer ques­tions about his fa­ther’s name, pro­fes­sion and caste.
