A big sum of Rs over 200 crore is riding on actor Salman Khan, who was on Wednesday convicted of all charges in the 2002 hit-and-run case.

His two upcoming films, Bajrangi Bhaijaan , which stars Kareena Kapoor, and Prem Ratan Dhan Paayo opposite Sonam Kapoor, are currently in the last stages of shooting.

According to Amod Mehra, a Bollywood analyst, Salman had committed to do four others films, including Dabang 3 and Entry Mein No Entry , which were at the stage of announcement.

In all, an investment of Rs 200 crore is riding on Salman, who has delivered a string of box office successes in the last few years, according to another trade analyst Komal Nahata.

He is also facing trial in a Rajasthan court for hunting a black buck during the shooting of Hum Saath Saath Hain .
