While actor Ajay Devgn, a close friend of Salman's was already with the family even while the actor's appeal for bail was being argued in court, his Prem Ratan Dhan co-star Anupam Kher rushed to be with the Khans soon after.

"It's not just a huge relief to the Khan family. It's a huge relief to the entire industry. He is gem of a person and if I may say so, all his good work that he has done is now coming in his favour.

We have been praying for him and I'm happy for him. Whatever we are today, it's only because of him. He has given break to so many newcomers," writer-director Sajid Samji told news agency IANS.

Twitter erupted with reactions from overjoyed well-wishers of Salman. Here's what they wrote

Sonakshi Sinha's brother Luv made it quite clear where his sympathies lay. He wrote on Facebook:

"If you talk about justice being served then why not talk about how Alistair Perrera served 3 years for killing 7 people while being drunk, how Mr Sanjeev Nanda served a shorter sentence even after running down 7 people while intoxicated and Mr Puru Raj kumar as well.

Mr Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years even though the other cases were far more heinous. I have nothing against the individuals. I would assume that since the other two individuals were not movie stars who were involved in far more serious accidents they were not worth being crucified by the media as the TRP's wouldn't shoot up. As I wrote earlier this is my personal opinion but I'd like to hear what you have to say as well."
