Bollywood actor Salman Khan sentenced to jail, regains freedom

BOLLYWOOD ACTOR  SENTENCED TO JAIL, REGAINS FREEDOM

Bollywood actor, Salman Khan, who was sentenced to 5 years in prison on Thursday has been granted bail by the court on Saturday while he appeals his conviction on charges of poaching rare deer in a wildlife preserve two decades ago.
Khan was convicted on Thursday and sentenced to five years in prison, and was immediately sent to jail. On Saturday, Judge Ravindra Kumar Joshi ordered him to sign a surety bond of 50,000 rupees ($770) before he could be set free from the jail in Jodhpur, a town in western India.

After he was released, he was driven straight to the airport to fly to his home in Mumbai, India’s entertainment capital.
Khan’s overjoyed fans danced outside the courtroom and chanted “We love you, Salman.” His sisters, Alvira and Arpita, were present during the hearing.
Four other Bollywood stars also accused in the case — Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam — were acquitted Thursday by Chief Judicial Magistrate Dev Kumar Khatri. They were in the jeep that Salman Khan was believed to be driving during the hunt in 1998. Tabu and Neelam both use just one name.
Khan says he did not shoot the two blackbuck deer. The heavily muscled actor was acquitted in two related cases.
His attorney Mahesh Bora has challenged the conviction and sentence, and Khan will remain free pending the outcome of the appeal.
Soli Sorabjee, a legal expert, said it was normal for bail to be granted in such a case, and didn’t see Khan getting any special treatment from the court. “This has nothing to do with Khan’s personality as an actor,” he said.


The 52-year-old Khan has starred in more than 90 Hindi-language films. But he has also had a reputation as a Bollywood bad boy, known for his run-ins with the law — including a fatal car accident — and his troubled relationships with women.
His biggest Hindi films include “Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam (I have fallen in love),” ”Sultan (Ruler),” ”Ek Tha Tiger (There was a tiger)” and “Tiger Zinda Hai (Tiger).
