With the verdict of the high profile case hanging in balance, I take you down the memory lane and tell you how it all started 13 years ago
May 6,2015. That is the date when Salman Khan’s hit and run case, which lasted over a decade, will finally reach a conclusion.
While the entire nation awaits the verdict of the high profile case, which could decide the fate of Salman Khan’s acting career, I take you on a flashback mode and brush up your memory on how superstar Salman Khan got himself embroiled in the hit and run case.
When: September 28, 2002
Where: Hill Road junction, Bandra, Mumbai
How it happened: After spending an evening with friends at Rain Bar and JW Marriot, Salman Khan was heading back home in his white Toyota Land Cruiser when the accident took place. While it is still not known whether Salman or his driver was behind the wheels, the Land Cruiser crashed into American Express Bakery on Hill Road junction in Bandra, allegedly running over five footpath dwellers, killing one and seriously injuring four others. This fatal accident dragged the actor into a 13-year long court case.
How verdict will affect Salman: Salman Khan is one of the biggest superstars of B-town. He holds the record of giving seven consecutive 100 crore films. Over Rs 200 crore are riding on the actor, as Salman’s schedule is completely packed with films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Prem Ratan Dhan Payo, Shhuddhi and Sultan. If proven guilty by the court, rumours suggest that the actor may face 10 years of imprisonment, and this might severely affect Salman’s filmi commitments.
Salman’s entire family has been really supportive when this case gave him a tough time. Now that the verdict awaits tomorrow, his family, his die hard fans will be praying hard for Salman to be proclaimed innocent by the court. What fate has in store for Salman Khan? We will know in a day’s time.
