Salman Khan, who had been sent to prison in the Jodhpur jail for the Chinkara poaching case, was granted bail by the Jodhpur bench of Rajasthan High Court on Friday. He reached home in Mumbai later in the day.
The actor was in tears when he heard the news of his bail and said, â€œI am very thankful to my fans who prayed for me. I am not guilty. I want to hold my head high and not hang it in shame.â€
Salman had been in Jodhpur Central Jail for the past seven days after a sessions court upheld his five-year jail term in the 1998 Chinkara poaching case. The actor utilized his time in jail painting and has expressed his desire to auction all the paintings that he made in jail.
However the animal activists are not happy with the news, “Its absolutely appalling. This is not even his first conviction. The court hasnâ€™t considered that he has four other cases against him. He has beaten co-stars, run over five people, bribed witnesses, he’s been shown on TV holding a gun in his hand. Isnâ€™t he a menace to society?” animal Rights’ activist Menaka Gandhi said on hearing the news of the actorâ€™s bail.
The revision petition challenging the actorâ€™s conviction will come up for hearing in the Rajasthan High Court on October 24.
Salman Khanâ€™s arrest was a rude shock to the Khan family and apparently all the family members are quite disturbed as of now. So, it was definitely a sticky situation for Malaika when Sahara One executives asked her to report on the sets of Suniel Shettyâ€™s Biggest Loser Jeetega Grand Finale today. Malaika had previously committed to perform a dance number for the grand finale of the show.
So, the lady consulted her husband Arbaaz Khan and the family and with their permission has decided to keep her commitment. So, the show today will have the always perfect Malaikaâ€™s performance in it.
Malaika says â€œIn view of the family crisis I hoped that the shoot could be delayed. But I understand that it is a telecast issue and that it could not be postponed. It was a commitment and thatâ€™s the only reason I am doing it.â€
Saturday morning was a gloomy one for the actor Salman Khan as he came out of his Bandra home, surrounded by his family, to surrender himself.
â€œI think as a responsible citizen I should go and surrender in Jodhpur,â€ said Khan.
He left for the airport with his lawyer Bishnoi and his brother Sohail Khan. At the Jodhpur airport, the police were waiting with its paperwork ready to complete the formalities to arrest the star. The actor, looking impassive behind sunglasses, was taken out of the airport and driven straight to the courthouse. There he presented himself in front the judge and then it was straight to jail where he will have spend quite a few days at the very least as Prisoner Number 343 in a white prison uniform.
It is raining prison sentences on Bollywood. Less than a month after Sanjay Dutt was sentenced to six- year prison, his friend Salman Khan- the so-called bad boy of Bollywood- was sent away for five years on Friday for poaching a protected Chinkara in Rajasthan. A police team from Jodhpur is on its way to Mumbai to execute the non-bailable arrest warrant against the actor. His lawyers are pinning their hopes on the Jodhpur HC, where they will seek his bail today and argue against the conviction.
It all started on October 1, 1998 when Salman and his co-stars of â€˜Hum Saath Saath Hainâ€™ went out hunting in Guda Bishnoiyan region of Jodhpur and were chased away by irate villagers. He was arrested on October 13 but released on bail.
Salman has signed projects worth about Rs. 200 crores and of these, shooting for two films are already underway- â€˜God Tussi Great Hoâ€™ and the remake of the Tamil hit â€˜Pokhiriâ€™.
Sanjay Dutt took an interim breath of fresh air on Monday 20th August after being sentenced to six years imprisonment on July 31. Supreme Court released Dutt on Bail on the ground that the Mumbai court that convicted him had not yet provided him with a copy of his sentence, said his lawyer, Surender Singh. Five other people convicted in the same case were also granted bail on the same technicality.
However, this star will have to return to the dark wall of the prison as soon as they are given the copy of the sentence.
Dutt was convicted in November and sentenced on July 31 to six years in prison for illegally possessing three automatic rifles and a pistol. Dutt’s case was part of the sprawling Mumbai bombings trial, which dragged on for 12 years and saw more than 100 people convicted, 686 witnesses and 13,000 pages of testimony.
Sanjay has appealed to Supreme Court and the industry is still awaiting the fate of his three unfinished films which have a bleak future with the fate of the actor still undecided.
