Salman Khan was today sentenced to five years in jail in the 2002 hit-and-run case. He appealed in the High Court and was granted a two-day interim bail. While ordinary citizens welcomed the verdict as proof that everyone is equal before law, Bollywood, by and large, rallied behind the actor with some even calling the verdict unfair. On 'The Buck Stops Here', we debate if this verdict will provide a template for all such cases in future and is proof that our legal system is a great leveler between the rich and the poor. We also ask if Bollywood's response to the verdict is appropriate? As it plays victim, has it forgotten the real victims? Mohd Kalim, one of the victims and a witness in the case, shares his story. This, as jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali explains to him what she meant by tweeting about why people sleep on pavements.
