Bollywood is deeply saddened with this news.

Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in jail in the 2002 hit-and-run case. Bollywood is deeply saddened with this news.

Actress and BJP MP Hema Malini said she was praying that the actor gets a lesser sentence.

“Feeling very sad. Will pray for lesser imprisonment for Salman. My sympathy with Salman and his family,” she said.

Actor Shakti Kapoor said he was saddened by the verdict. “However, a law is a law. This is unfortunate. Salman’s family are law-abiding citizens and they have already undergone 13 years of mental torture. His philanthropic work is well known and he is known to help the needy people,” he said.

Former beauty queen and actress Sushmita Sen, who has shared screen with Salman in films like “Biwi No 1”, “Tumko Naa Bhul Payenge”, tweeted, “Prayers and strength for my friend @BeingSalmanKhan and his family. Harsh sentencing doesn’t mean justice. Must appeal. Deeply saddened.

“There is an enormous difference between being a criminal and being human. True justice is then served. Keep the faith @BeingSalmanKhan,” Sen wrote.

Actor-turned-politician Chiranjeevi said, “I am really feeling very bad that my colleague Salman has been convicted. I think he still has a scope to appeal it to the higher courts. I think definitely he will have some considerations. He has got chance to take bail, meanwhile he can do justice to his films which have been committed.”

Raj Babbar, who has shared screen with Salman in “Bodyguard”, said, “It is a relief to those who were killed during the incident… Salman and his family are hurt. We respect the court’s verdict.”
