Bollywood veteran actor Rishi Kapoor was among the first few to tweet in support of Salman Khan after the verdict in 2002 hit-and-run case was announced. The actor had written: “The Kapoors are with the Khans in their difficult time. Time is the biggest healer. God Bless!”

However, he took exception to singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya‘s rather bizarre Twitter posts where he blamed the accident victim for ‘sleeping on the road and getting killed.’

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).

                Question How did they get to the position they are at present ? Cores of rupees are collected every time they produce a film. This money has come from mostly poor helpless street fellows. This is what makes these super stars rich and it is pity that these are the people who look down on these very poor people who have contributed their meagre resources for what these stars who claim to be super stars. Salman Khan should be dealt with harshly to set an example to rest of super stars.

                  how do people support a lair who has been using every possible trick in his bag to get away from conviction (including being human trick). i mean for 13 years, how? im still surprised why were the lawyers who suggested these tricks are not penalized. 5 years is too short it should be 10. 5 for killing 5 for lie. by the way in which part of the world you are allowed to ride cars on pavement. by the way there is solid human evidence against Salman
