No Record Found.
While Salman Khan’s acquittal in the chinkara poaching cases has sent the social media into a tizzy with a section of the netizens ridiculing the judgment, the film industry seems to be rejoicing. The Rajasthan High Court’s verdict means Salman Khan, at least for the moment, has only one legal case pending against him now – that of the killing of a blackbuck. Earlier this year, Salman also was acquitted by a Mumbai court in the drunken driving case that has resulted in death of one person.
We reached out to some people who were more than happy to express their opinion on the verdict.
Varun Dhawan and Jacqueline Fernandez who are busing promoting their upcoming film Dhishoom shared their happiness on Salman's acquittal.
Varun said, "I think the law has to take its course. It's the court's judgment and we have to respect it. So I respect the court's judgment."
Choosing not to speak much on the issue, Jacqueline said, "Yes, I know. I think that's very exciting.”
Aprita chose the medium of Twitter to expressing her gratitude to the almighty. She tweeted, “Thank You God for always showering us with your grace & blessings. Today is a big day for us. Thank U to all bhai's & the families well wishers for your prayers, support, love and best wishes. This wouldn't have been possible without you.'' (sic)
Salman's Rakhi sister and Pulkit Samrat’s estranged wife Shweta Rohira exclaimed in happiness, “I am so excited and happy that Salman Bhai has been acquitted finally. My happiness & relief knows no bounds today! Goodness wins. Love you bhai!”
Best known for his act of Chedi Singh in Dabangg, Sonu Sood shared his excitement too. “I am glad he got justice. Salman is one of the nicest actors of Bollywood. He is like an elder brother to me and I feel that it was a long due.He has already faced lot of problem due to case,” he said.
Not to be left behind in the celebration former VJ and actress Sophie Choudry commented, “As a law abiding citizen I respect the honourable court's decision. And as a Salman khan fan, I am thrilled for him. It is a case that has been hanging on his head for years. Finally he is free.”
Subhash Ghai who directed Salman in Yuvvraaj also tweeted, “Acquittal @BeingSalmanKhan is story of bad times good times. I fully believe in our judiciary wid many doors open to knock for fair justice." (Sic)
In the meantime Renuka Shahane, who acquired fame for playing Salman Khan’s ‘bhabhi’ in Hum Aapke Hain Koun…! stood apart from the crowed and expressed dismay over the judiciary for taking 18 years to reach a judgment on the cases.
In a strongly worded Facebook post the actress stated, “In 1998 a Black Buck & 2 Chinkaras (that are endangered species & therefore cannot be killed) were allegedly killed on a hunting trip that included Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Amrita Singh, Tabu & Sonali Bendre. Somehow while the ‘mor’ was ‘naaching’ in their ‘hivdas’ they wanted to shoot some endangered animals. And they did & ate them too. But did they? Out of all only Salman was charged for killing a black buck & a chinkara. He also served time for the same in Jodhpur jail. No charges were framed against the others. The case carried on & on & on as our cases do for two main reasons 1) Having big bucks (sometimes even black bucks….different from the Black Buck who passed) or 2) Not having big bucks. Salman of course falls in the 1st category of big bucks ( I don’t know their colour & we should not be racist by commenting) So now after 18 years he has been acquitted of charges in both cases. Some questions come to mind 1) Who killed the Black Buck & the Chinkaras? 2) Did the driver kill them? 3) Did nobody kill them? 4) Do judges decide according to Buckworth-Lewis method? (What? Er…it’s Duckworth-Lewis?) Sorry! 4) Who will pay for the mental torture that Salman has had to go through now that he has been declared not guilty? 5) Doesn’t the nation want to know the truth? (Preferably very loudly) What? The nation doesnt want to know? No? Why? Oh you don’t say…..busy spending bucks on Sultan….Er….then let it pass….yeah the Buck, what else? Dear, deer! Surreal!!!
