It is said that Salman and some of his co-stars from Hum Saath Saath Hain (1999) allegedly went on a hunt and killed an endangered species of blackbuck. This happened when the crew was shooting for a segment of the film in Jodhpur. There were mass protests by the Bishnoi community of the area, and finally a case was lodged against the actors.
