  • Salman Khan has been arrested will go to jail

Bollywood actor Preity Zinta, who is a close friend of Salman Khan, rushed to Jodhpur to visit the actor, who is now lodged in the central jail. "Yesterday I got threatening SMSes and internet calls warning me not to appear for Salman Khan in bail hearing today", Salman's lawyer Mahesh Bora said.

Some reports said that Salman broke down inside the court after hearing the 5-year jail term. Actor Salman Khan who was convicted and sentenced to five years in jail on Thursday in the 20-year old case. Bollywood's "Bhai" was directly taken to Jodhpur Central Jail from the court where all arrangements for his arrival had been made. A high court suspended his sentence a week later and eventually acquitted the actor of all charges. While he eventually got acquitted from nearly all of them, the actor however served a six day imprisonment in Jodhpur before this happened.

The 52-year-old actor killed the two blackbucks - a protected species - near a remote village in Rajasthan's city of Jodhpur late on october 1 night in 1998 while shooting a movie.

Slated for Eid release this year, "Race 3" is co-produced by Salman and Tips Industries Ltd, and stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Saqib Saleem, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Anil Kapoor.

Indian police in 2016 charged Salman Khan's bodyguard for illegal possession of a firearm and assaulting a waiter at a pub in Mumbai.

Khan, who has never married, was accused of assaulting former Miss World Aishwarya Rai during a closely-watched relationship which ended more than a decade ago.

His sisters Alvira and Arpita, as well as bodyguard Shera were at the court when the verdict was announced.

Other accused - including Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were acquitted with the court giving them a benefit of doubt.

Meanwhile, Bollywood is shuddering at the prospect of the actor spending five years in prison as the superstar has projects worth over Rs 600 crore under his belt. He argued that no investigation in any of the cases of poaching proved that Salman used firearms.

Salman's lawyers have reached out to the sessions court, which will hear the bail appeal on Friday morning.
