Salman Khan got convicted in the 2002 hit and run case today. The actor has been sentenced to 5 years in Jail and this news has saddened all the fans and the entire Bollywood industry.
Usually when such a case is slammed against the actor, the industry doesn't stand up for them. For example in Shiney Ahuja's case or Sanjay Dutt's for instance.
With Salman Khan, the entire industry is standing behind him and praying for him. Shahrukh Khan too went and visited the actor before he had to leave for the hearing.
Bollywood celebs had constantly been tweeting about 'Bhai', his case and their opinion about the verdict.
Vishal Dadlani who is known to speak his mind tweeted, "Hmm. Kodnani killed 97, Bajrangi killed 95 in '02. Those weren't accidents. They were convicted. Yet, they are out on bail. Justice, my ass."
Kamaal R Khan like always had an opinion to share too, "Salman khan got 5yrs prison means he is on way of Sanjay Dutt. 2big super stars are getting worst time in Budhapa means money is not evrytng."
Every Bollywood celebrity from Alia Bhatt to Arjun Kapoor have been tweeting. Read on...

Kamaal R Khan-KRK @kamaalrkhan
If judiciary is independent then why Salman Khan was innocent for so many years in cong rule? N how he has become guilty within few months?
Ayushmann Khurrana @ayushmannk
Let the law take its course. And let his fans be his force. Let the judgment be the difference between the two. And we know who may win.
