NEW DELHI - An Indian court will try five Bollywood actors, including action hero Salman Khan, for allegedly killing two rare deer in a western India wildlife preserve 14 years ago.

Attorney K.L. Vyas says that while Salman Khan was charged with shooting the bucks, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and others allegedly abetted the crime by encouraging him while hunting in Rajasthan state.

The Indian court system is notoriously slow, and it often takes years and even decades for a case to go to trial.

If convicted, the actors could face three to six years in prison. They deny the charges.

Four of the accused appeared before a magistrate Saturday.

On Thursday, Sanjay Dutt had a conviction for illegal possession of weapons upheld, and the Bollywood leading man now faces prison time.
