Though Salman Khan is back home after spending three nights in prison, a series of shows abroad featuring the star stands postponed.
Bunty Wallia, one of the show's organisers, confirmed the decision to postpone the forthcoming series of 'Rock Stars' concerts in North America by a few weeks.
"The shows were supposed to start in Calgary on April 21 and were to go on over the weekends. Now we are starting the shows in the first week of May, going into June," Walia said.
"As of now, that's the plan. But obviously further decisions depend on Salman," he added.
"There's no Rock Stars concert without Salman. He needs to get his travel permit. I don't think that will be a problem."
Others on the show include Kareena Kapoor and Mallika Sherawat who are known not to see eye to eye.
"Is that a fact?" Bunty chuckles. "I would truly enjoy a live cat-fight during these shows. But, seriously, they're too professional to let their personal differences show."
Next, Bunty is trying to convince Abhishek Bachchan to go on a world tour.
"I am trying my best to convince him. I convinced Abhishek to perform at the Filmfare awards this year. I have convinced him to do a show with Aishwarya Rai in Bangalore. He is still not sure if he can manage an international audience.
"I think we will get there next year. The kind of response we get to any indication of a concert with Amitji (Amitabh Bachchan), Abhishek and Aishwarya is unparalleled."
