  2. "I was not worried," said Salman Khan on the blackbuck verdict

Salman Khan's blackbuck poaching case verdict may have given sleepless nights to the producers who've invested in his films but not the 52-year-old actor. At the event to launch the trailer of his new movie Race 3, Salman Khan's blackbuck verdict was invoked. When Salman was asked if he was under pressure while filming Race 3 because of then-impending blackbuck verdict, a media coordinator tried to digress by saying that no questions on the blackbuck verdict and the Karnataka elections would be entertained but Salman Khan answered anyway. Salman asked the journalist: "Did you think I was going to go in forever?" And when a journalist replied in the negative, Salman Khan added: "Thank you, because I was worried."



The Internet is not very impressed with Salman Khan's reply and lashed out on Twitter. "Oh yeah, in our country one can get away with anything," wrote one angry user. Another comment read: "We know the power of money... police and justice both are up for sale to the highest bidder."

Here are some angry tweets:
 
 
 

Salman Khan was found guilty of hunting blackbuck while filming Hum Saath Saath Hain in Rajasthan in 1998 and he was sentenced to five years in prison. His co-stars Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were charged with inciting the actor to hunt but have been acquitted for lack of evidence. Salman spent two days in prison in Jodhpur from April 7 to April 9, when he was granted bail. Salman Khan has filed a petition for suspension of his jail term, the next hearing of which will be held on July 17.

Salman Khan's Race 3 releases on June 15. The Remo D'Souza-directed film also stars Jacqueline Fernandez, Bobby Deol, Anil Kapoor and Daisy Shah.
