Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, who was granted bail in the 20-year-old 1998 blackbuck poaching case, on Monday thanked fans and supporters for standing by him.

"Tears of gratitude. To all my loved ones who are with me and never lost hope. Thank you for being there with all the love and support. God Bless," Salman said in a tweet.

The actor was sentenced to five years in jail by a Jodhpur court on April 5. He spent two nights in the Jodhpur Central Jail before being released on bail on April 7.

While he was imprisoned, his fans and supporters kept vigil outside the jail premises and his home in Mumbai and on his return, they celebrated with great rejoicing.

The 52-year-old Salman, after his release, was flown back to Mumbai in a private plane. On reaching his city, Mumbai, late Saturday, he received a touching welcome by crowds outside his apartment to the accompaniment of songs and dance.
