In a series of tweets, Rishi Kapoor said ‘wannabe Chamchas of Salman siding him with ridiculous support.’ Salman was found guilty of all the eight charges including culpable homicide in the 2002 hit-and-run case and has been sentenced to five years in jail.

Here are Rishi Kapoor’s tweets:

Ajaz Khan, who was seen in ‘Bigg Boss 7’, had tweeted: “To hell with INDIAN law our Government is responsible for this. Garibo ko ghar do they sleep so close to the road.” But he later deleted the tweet.

Following Rishi Kapoor’s tweets condemning Ajaz Khan, he wrote:

But Rishi Kapoor later clarified his ‘chamcha’ comment saying that his use of this word was only for people like Abhijeet and that his family was always with the Khans.

Salman Khan is currently out on two-day interim bail and Bombay High Court will hear his plea on Friday (May 8).
