Salman Khan, who was granted bail in the blackbuck poaching case on Saturday, received a powerful message
from his Dabangg
heroine Sonakshi Sinha. Minutes after the news of Salman Khan's bail broke, Sonakshi Instagrammed a photo with the Dabangg
Khan and wrote: "The force and the force-field," but what seems interesting is the usage of the hashtags, which are - "#surakshakavach #humreallysaathsaathhai #gotyourback." Salman was found guilty of poaching endangered blackbuck in Rajasthan while filming Hum Saath Saath Hain
in 1998 and was sentenced to five years in jail. Salman's Hum Saath Saath Hain
co-stars Tabu, Sonali Bendre, Saif Ali Khan and Neelam Kothari have been acquitted due to lack of evidence - they were charged with inciting the actor to hunt.
Sonakshi Sinha's photo with Salman Khan, in which the duo can be seen sharing a light moment together, has gone crazy viral and garnered over 160,371 'likes' within an hour. Here's how Sonakshi's got Salman Khan's back, quite literally.
Meanwhile, Sonam Kapoor also tweeted for her Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
co-star and said: "You're the best! Always by your side!" Sonakshi Sinha was one of the first celebrities
to visit Salman Khan's Mumbai home after the verdict was delivered on Thursday. While the paparazzi also spotted Sonakshi's parents - Shatrughan Sinha
and Poonam - at the Galaxy Apartments, the veteran actor said Sonakshi had rushed to meet Salman's parents and they joined her later. "My daughter Sonakshi reached Salman's home much earlier than me and spent a lot more time with the family. We are very close to the Khan family and have the highest regards for Salman and his parents," IANS quoted Shatrughan Sinha as saying.
