Three years ago Salman was acquitted  in the hit-and-run case by the Bombay Hight Court .The relief came 13 years of agonizing wait for Salman and his family for the ordeal to end.True to character Salman had shown no emotion when the honourable Judge announced the acquittal.

  Again the Mighty Khan stood unfazed as  he was convicted.

Says a buddy of the superstar, “That’s Salman for you. He won’t give anyone the benefit of seeing him vulnerable ,not even the honourable Judge,  though he otherwise cries like a baby at the drop of a hat. In fact after the verdict when the family rallied around him Salman broke down and wept copiously.”

Salman Khan won’t go to jail that easily. His fan base is confident that  Bhai can do no wrong.His family is solidly behind him. Father Salim Khan and  brothers Sohail and Arbaaz have already started  to consult  a battery of lawyers  for  the  next level  of action.

Personally,I’ve  never seen  Salman  shaken by anything . He is prone to  extremes  of emotions and he will hate you for not hating those whom he hates. I remember a conversation with him in my hotel room at 2 am in February 2003 where he was extremely upset with his former girlfriend the stunning beauty who had  jilted him.Apparently he blamed Shah Rukh Khan  for  the  breakup.When I  refused  to agree with  Salman  he got  upset walked  out  of my hotel room with a glass in his hand(Salman  drank non-stop  throughout the evening)his faithful bodyguard Shera behind him.

 I’ve to  confess I was relieved to see him go at that unearthly hour. But Salman was only pretending to be gone. He came back chuckling like a child who has just been caught with his hand  in the candy jar.

There is a child within Salman Khan that will never die. You tell that child to shut up he will shout your roof down. You tell that child to go home he will stay in your house till the  crack of dawn. You tell that child to not shoot at an endangered species. You know what he will do.

This is a tough situation  for Salman’s family, and his  producers. Remo D’Souza’s Race 3  was  racing to  a finish. Now a  brake would have to be  applied.Another magnum  opus entitled  Bharat directed Ali Abbas Zafar with Salman was about to go on the floors later this year.While Salman’s buddy Sajid Nadiadwala was planning Kick 2.

I guess God had planned another kick altogether.Milte hai, break ke baad.
