Being Salman

Indian Media is Salman-ified since last week coz it was time for Bhai's verdict. Salman was sentenced for five years rigorous imprisonment in the 2002 hit-and-run case by Sessions Court in Mumbai on Wednesday i.e. 6th May.  However, hours after he was sentenced to five years imprisonment, Salman Khan was granted interim bail by the Bombay High Court till 8th of May. Instead of being in Jail on 6th of May, Sallu Bhai received a heroic welcome at his Bandra residence by his followers. During that period lot of Bollywood Celebrities, Political-big-shots met Salman Khan to show their support as if Salman was going to jail because he had killed a Terrorist and not a poor footpath dweller.

            As expected The Bombay High Court on last Friday i.e. 8th of May suspended the sentence of actor Salman Khan and granted him bail till his appeal is decided. So it was celebration time for Salman and his loyal fans who had seen his each & every film since “Maine Pyar Kiya” days.  Fire Crackers were busted outside his Bandra residence & huge party was organized at Salman’s Panvel Farmhouse to celebrate his release from jail.

            Going back to life & career of Salman Khan, ‘Bhai’ as he is popularly called is always in news. Controversies have been following Salman, may it be the Backbuck case, comments about 26/11 attacks or altercations with his Bollywood friends like Vivek Oberoi, Aishwarya Rai and Katrina Kaif. However, Salman is one of the successful actors in Bollywood whose films are guaranteed to touch a whooping 100 crores mark. Salman also has a huge fan base not only in India but all around the globe.

            Salman Khan is also known for his Charity Work & his “Being Human” Charitable Foundation which was started in 2007 has helped thousands of underprivileged children by providing them with healthcare & Educational facilities. Apart from that Salman Khan is also known for helping lots of Bollywood aspirants by giving them financial assistance & other help as & when needed. Talking about body building in India, “Salman Khan” is a role model for lots of youngsters.

Since last few days Social Media is divided on the Salman Topic with one section wanting Salman to be in jail so that the power of Law thrives over power of money. On the other hand there is a huge Salman fan following who wants their hero out of the jail. According to them what Salman did was wrong but looking at this Social Work, his star power, the Bollywood Actor should be given another chance. Few of them are even saying that it was not Salman’s fault but the person who died in accident was at fault as he was sleeping on footpath. So this Salman “hit and run case” is going to take lot of twist and turns in coming months. Let’s hope that Court makes a proper judgment, so that common man does not lose his faith in the Indian Judicial System.
