Stardom comes with its own price. Who better than Bollywood actor Salman Khan is an example of it? The Dabangg actor has earned unprecedented fame over the years. However, any small piece of information regarding the actor becomes a breaking news. Even if it about his lockdown scenes at Panvel. But what grabbed the most attention was his hit and run case. Below is a scoop you wouldn’t want to miss.
For the unversed, it all happened on the intervening night of September 27, and 28 in 2002. Salman Khan’s luxury car (Land Cruiser) crashed into an American Express bakery in Bandra. The incident led to the death of 1 victim and left the other 4 with injuries. Owing to the same, after 13 years of legal battle, the superstar was finally declared guilty of all the charges against him. Salman was sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment.
However, later the actor was granted bail and the court suspended his prison term until final appeal hearing in July. However, post the mysterious death of the prime witness constable Ravindra Patil, Salman Khan was acquitted of all the charges in a verdict in December 2015.
Cut to 2 years, the superstar in 2017 gave an interview to Huff Post and spoke all about the hit and run case. The actor revealed how he’s been dragged into every hit and run case happening in the country.
When asked about how he deals with the ghosts of his past, Salman Khan said, “I don’t have any ghosts. These ghosts have been created by people who are running businesses on them. There are so many incidents like mine that happened and nobody ever talks about them. Whenever there’s a hit-and-run that happens anywhere, they drag me into it all over again. I mean, what the hell, come on, man. How much will you go on and on…”
Furthermore, the superstar said that all of this wouldn’t have happened if he wasn’t at a position that he is. When asked about how people think he got away with his crime because he’s someone with power, the Radhe actor said, “Which is not at all true. It’s not true. It’s all nautanki (mischief). Even now there are 5 out of job people who’ll show up on television to debate my case. Some for, some against. It’s ridiculous. None of them would have happened if I wasn’t a star. None of it.”
