New Delhi: Actor Salman Khan was on Wednesday convicted of all charges in the hit-and-run case dating from 2002 and sentenced to five years in prison. The actor has been granted two days interim bail till May 8 by the Bombay High Court. Ahead of the verdict, a series of friends and family visited Mumbai's Galaxy Apartments, the Khan residence. Chief among these was Salman's Karan Arjun co-star Shah Rukh Khan who was spotted at Salman's home on Tuesday evening.
Salman and Shah Rukh conducted a public feud for almost six years after a falling out at actress Katrina Kaif's birthday party in 2008 and recently mended their friendship at Salman's sister Arpita's wedding last year.(Also Read - Salman Khan Convicted: What Twitter is Saying)

Salman Khan, 49, flew home yesterday from Kashmir where he has been shooting new film Bajrangi Bhaijaan. A Sessions Court has decided that the actor is guilty of ramming his SUV into a Mumbai bakery in 2002, killing one. The actor's lawyers argued his driver Ashok Singh was at the wheel, and not Salman. The judge delivering the verdict said this was 'improbable.'
Salman has completed much of the filming for both his movies releasing this year - Bajrangi Bhaijaan with Kareena Kapoor and Prem Ratan Dhan Payo with Sonam Kapoor.
