While the entire Bollywood industry expressed their opinion on Salman Khan’s Blackbuck poaching case’s verdict. We all were wondering what Salman’s close friend Shahrukh has to say on the matter. There is this old video making rounds on the internet where Shahrukh is seen defending Salman Khan.
In the video Shahrukh Khan has expressed his views on Salman Khan’s legal struggles, he is heard saying “To a great extent I feel that there are a lot of advantages of being a movie star and being famous and at the same time there are a few negative things too. And I think one of the negatives of being a celebrity is that you get judged even before your crime is proven or proved. This has happened time and again with Salman. I think by virtue of the impression that stardom is giving to people, they think that they can say anything about the stars and it’ll be alright. That I think, is wrong. I think, I’m nobody and I’m genuinely not somebody who can comment on what the law is. We all respect it (the law), but somewhere, at a personal level, one feels and wishes all this did not happen to Salman.”
Here is the video, which has been shared on Twitter by a user.
Muhabbat Baato dosto Nafrat already bhut phel chuki hai.
Salman Khan is good person just because of some issues don't hate him.
Respect the Law, Respect The People's if you can't than please do your work don't creat problem

The video seems to be quite an old one, but it shows the concern Shahrukh Khan has for his friend.
Salman Khan was convicted in the 20-year-old blackbuck poaching case by the Jodhpur court in 5th April. The actor is sentenced to 5 years of imprisonment and 10,000 rupees fine. The judgement on his bail plea is yet to come out.
