Last week, Salman, 52, was convicted of poaching endangered blackbuck in Rajasthan 20 years ago and sentenced to five years in jail. He spent two days in prison in Jodhpur, where he was being tried, and was granted bail on Saturday afternoon. Salman Khan is now home in Mumbai.

Bollywood has closed ranks and several celebrities have gone public with their support of Salman Khan, among them is his Dabangg co-star Sonakshi Sinha and Varun Dhawan, who recently starred in a remake of the Salman hit Judwaa. Actress and TV personality Simi Garewal has claimed in a tweet that the actor is shielding someone else because of 'silly emotional reasons.' Preity Zinta, who has made films like Chori Chori Chupke Chupke with Salman, was pictured in Jodhpur last week, presumably to visit or offer support to the jailed actor.
 

 
 
 

Salman's sisters Alvira and Arpita accompanied him to Jodhpur and returned to Mumbai after he got bail. Arpita posted this emotional note about her brother today.
 


After returning to Mumbai from Jodhpur, Salman was visited by Katrina Kaif, Varun Dhawan, his Race 3 team and other celebs. Thousands of fans and well-wishers had also gathered outside his home to get a glimpse of Salman, who later waved to them from his balcony. Salman also attended co-star Saqib Saleem's birthday party.
