The craze for Bollywood actor Salman Khan is not limited to the Indian borders. The actor enjoys a huge fan-base around the world.
A Jodhpur court on Thursday convicted Salman Khan in the blackbuck poaching case and sentenced him to five years in jail. After the judgment was announced, Salman spent a night in jail.
Soon after the judgement, reactions flocked in thick and fast leaving the internet divided on the verdict. Salman Khan fans were left heart-broken who argued that his “humanitarian” work should have been considered by the court.
Salman has one fan in Pakistan who is grabbing the most number of eyeballs for his love for the actor. A video has gone viral on social media, in which it can be seen that the fan is urging the Pakistan police to lodge him in a jail. The emotional fan says that he wants to suffer the same ordeal as Salman as he requested police to put him behind the bars. The police, needless to say, refused his bizarre request. The man is popular in the country as Pakistan’s Salman because of his resemblance to the actor.
The video, which is making rounds on internet now, is actually from 2015 when Salman was convicted by a Mumbai court in the 2002 hit-and-run case in which the actor was accused of mowing down five people sleeping on a pavement, one of whom died later. Salman was later acquitted in the case as the ruling was overturned by the Bombay High Court.
Here is the video:
The order on Salman Khan’s bail plea in the blackbuck poaching has been reserved by a session’s court after the arguments in favour and against the bail were concluded on Friday. The court will pronounce the judgment on Saturday. This means Salman Khan will have to spend another day in jail.
Other actors – Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Neelam and Saif Ali Khan – were acquitted in the case.
