Bollywood industry and Salman Khan fans had a black day on April 5th 2018 when Jodhpur Court sentenced the superstar for five years in jail. The judgement came out after 20 years of that fateful night when Salman Khan along with his Hum Saath Saath Hain co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu and Sonali Bendre were out on hunting in a Jodhpur village.
After the sentencing, fans were expressing angers at the law on acquitting the co-accused while giving such a harsh punishment to Salman.
According to the News18 report, an eye witness in the blackbuck poaching case claims that it was indeed Salman Khan who shot the blackbuck, but Tabu was the one who provoked the actor to do so.
Meanwhile, Bollywood actress Preity Zinta, who shared the screen space with the actor many times visited her friend at the Jodhpur Central Jail. She was also the first of the celebrities to drop at Salman Khan’s home in Mumbai after the conviction was announced. Expressing her concern on Twitter, she wrote, “Shattered after hearing the verdict. Hope the court sees Salman Khan has helped and saved hundreds of people over the years. #beinghuman.”
