MUMBAI: A Mumbai Sessions Court has framed charges against Salman Khan. The actor will now be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder. With this verdict out, many Salman Khan fans were disappointed and came out in the support of their ‘Bodyguard’.
However, the actor has been granted exemption from making appearances in the court, which comes as a huge relief considering the packed schedule of the star.
Salman Khan has ‘Mental’ (Jai Ho!) lined up for release next year. He will also be seen in Sajid Nadiadwala’s ‘Kick’. Incidentally, because of the court hearing on 24 July the London schedule of the film has been postponed.
Meanwhile his fans have expressed their support for the star.
Hey Guys…..plzzzzzzz Pray For @BeingSalmanKhan . Tomorrow IS Jedgement Of Accident Case.

It’s not fair to charge Salman Khan with Culpable Homicide as it was an accident. An apology & compensation should suffice @BeingSalmanKhan

While these set of fans have come out in the support of Salman Khan, there is one tweet from a fan, which surprisingly isn’t quite star-struck with Salman Khan and his act.

But Salman Khan, the bindaas lad he is, isn’t boggled by these comments. He had gone to the extent of uploading his case files online, but had to pull them down.
