A Jodhpur court on Thursday convicted superstar Salman Khan in the much-talked-about blackbuck poaching case. The Bollywood actor was accused of poaching two blackbucks, the endangered species, during the shooting of his 1998 release Hum Saath Saath Hain.
Salman was accompanied by co-stars Tabu, Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre and Neelam Kothari, who too were accused in the poaching case.
Indeed, his conviction has come as a major setback for Salman himself.
According to the media reports, the Sultan actor was quite disappointed after he was found guilty by the Jodhpur session court and sentenced to five years of imprisonment.
In fact, it is reported that Salman Khan was quite upset since the time he had arrived in Jodhpur on Wednesday.
The Jodhpur hotel staff, reportedly, stated that the actor looked quite worried regarding the verdict on the blackbuck poaching case.
Notably, the session court, which has acquitted Salman's co-stars, is yet to announce the quantum of sentence for the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star.
Indeed, it is a tough time for Salman because if the actor gets an imprisonment of over three years, he will be sent behind the bars.
This will certainly be a big blow to Salman's career given that the superstar has several big projects in his kitty.
It will be interesting to see what the session court has in store for Salman Khan.
