The Hush Post: A ‘depressed’ Salman Khan has not been able to swallow the bitter pill of his arrest, and allegedly broke down in tears while in his jail cell.
The Bollywood star skipped his dinner, which consisted of the standard jail menu of dal and roti.
“First, Salman’s medical examination was done. While his blood pressure was normal, his mental state was disturbed. He is lodged in the cell next to Asaram Bapu. Once inside, he couldn’t control himself and broke down. He wasn’t expecting anything like this at all, and it has been a huge shock. Salman has been kept away from the other prisoners, as the authorities don’t want any untoward incident to happen. In Jodhpur, hironon (deers) ko devta maana jata hai. (In Jodhpur, deers are seen as gods),” said a source as reported by the NDTV.
“Dinner, which consists of daal and roti, had been served to him but he did not touch it. He seems to be depressed and lost in thought. One assumes that he will be shattered if he doesn’t get bail tomorrow,” the source added.
Salman Khan has been sentenced to five years in prison for shooting two black bucks in 1998. The animals are protected under the Wildlife Protection Act. While actors Saif Ali Khan, Tabu, Sonali Bendre and Neelam were also present at the scene, they were acquitted by the Jodhpur court.
