Bollywood actor Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years imprisonment in the 2002 hit-and-run case in Mumbai. Pronouncing the judgment, the court said that the actor was driving the car and all eight charges against him have been proved.

Due to his imprisonment, a number of the actor’s projects will suffer. Here’s a look at what’s at stake:

1. Salman Khan is said to have Rs 200 crores riding on him and film projects extending right up to 2017.

2. Salman is currently shooting for Sooraj Barjatya’s ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’ opposite Sonam Kapoor which is scheduled to release this year.

3. Another major current project of Salman’s that is also slated to have a 2015 release is Kabir Khan’s ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’. And its first look was to be released later this month.

4. Both films are safely expected to draw in atleast 100 crore each.

5. Salman Khan is also reportedly going to work in sequels to three films – Part two of 2005 hit ‘No Entry’ titled as ‘No Entry Mein Entry’, a third installment of hit franchise ‘Dabangg’ and sequel to ‘Kick’.

6. Director Karan Johar had also confirmed Salman Khan as the lead in much-talked about ‘Shuddhi’.

      I dont think it's a good idea sentencing salman khan for 5 years. The bollywood industry will suffer a huge loss for his imprisonment.i respect law but the sentence should be reduced. It is not fair.
