Salman Khan hit-and-run case Judgment on May 6! Will Justice Prevail?

The Judgment Day of Salman Khan’s notorious hit -and -run case has been eventually fixed on May 6, 2015. The Sessions Court D.W. Deshpande on Tuesday declared that on May 6 at 11.15 sharp, he will deliver the judgment in the crucial case that had been in waiting for the past 13 years.

During the trail 27 witnesses were examined by the Special Public Prosecutor Pradeep Gharat of which one turned hostile, while the rest 26 have admitted of watching Salman Khan committing the crime and later emerging from the driver’s seat! 

In fact a witnessed even stated that Salman Khan was under the influence of alcohol to such an extreme extent that he could not even control his body movements and had fallen twice while coming out from the car!! Later the medical report confirmed the truth reporting 0.062 per cent alcohol content in Salman Khan’s blood sample, which shockingly is double the permissible limit.


In his 29 pages final arguments the prosecution has emphasized clearly on important facts that establish Salman Khan is guilty. Among these points include Salman Khan was driving the car at the time of the mishap, did not possess a valid driving licence, or a liquor permit and most importantly he went abounding after the accident without helping the victims. 

In addition the statement of Salman Khan’s dead bodyguard Ravindra Patil will also play a vital role in the framing of judgment. Readers may remember Ravindra Patil, a policemen and bodyguard of Salman Khan during that time is only eye witness in this case. He was sitting next to Salman Khan on the dreadful night of September 28, 2002, when Salman Khan under the influence of alcohol drew his car recklessly.

In his statement he has firmly declared that Salman Khan was under the influence of alcohol and despite his repeated requests to let him drive, Khan ignored his pleas and rammed his car into a bakery in suburban Bandra, killing one person and injuring four others who were sleeping on the pavement.

However discarding the claims of the prosecution, Salman Khan’s defence counsel Shrikant Shivade maintained that his client was not driving the car at the time of the accident hence he asserted that the question of whether he was drunk or whether he had a valid licence did not arise.

Salman has been booked under Sections 279 (rash driving), 304 (Part II) (culpable homicide not amounting to murder), 134 (abetment of assault) and some other Sections of the Indian Penal Code, and Sections of the Motor Vehicle Act. If convicted, he may face imprisonment of up to 10 years.

But the million dollar question remains will ‘Justice Prevail’ in this high profile case?

Will Hrithik Roshan appear in FAST AND THE FURIOUS director’s next Hollywood film?

Bollywood hunk Hrithik Roshan will soon be joining the ranks of Bollywood stalwarts like Om Puri, Naseeruddin Shah, Irrfan Khan etc. Well, if you guess that Hrithink Roshan is transcending from his routine commercial masala potboilers into ‘art’ or the so called neo-realist cinema then you are mistaken.

Though it is true the above mentioned actors are identified for their special trait in parallel cinema but they are also recognized for representing Bollywood in several Hollywood movies hence like their exceptional histrionics Hrithik Roshan’s acting skills too have won the hearts of Hollywood filmmakers and they are queuing to sign the Greek God looking actor in their films.

However now it seems the actor has decided to give his nod to a Hollywood film. Speaking at TV channel event Hrithik Roshan spilled the beans. Without divulging much about his debutant Hollywood film Hrithik candidly confessed, “Yes, I have a Hollywood project this year." 

Speculations are on that surely Hrithik has given his nod to Rob Cohen, probably amazed at the stupendous success and critical acclaim of his latest hit FAST AND FURIOUS 7.
