Bollywood Star Salman Khan Faces Homicide Charges From 2002 Incident
Over the course of the last five years Salman Khan has turned around his public image, reclaiming the box office with a string of massive hits, and keeping his nose relatively clean. However, even in a country as star-obsessed as India, it just isn't always possible to run away from these things cleanly. The trial is slated to begin on July 19th, and ironically enough Khan doesn't have any projects in the immediate future, and it may stay that way for a while.
Salman Khan isn't the only big name Bollywood star in legal trouble, though. Just last month Sanjay Dutt (Munna Bhai M.B.B.S., Khalnayak) surrendered to police after facing illegal possession of arms charges relating to the 1993 Mumbai terror attacks. His case is far more complicated, however, Dutt is expected to spend a good portion of his five year sentence behind bars. He's currently starring in the upcoming Policegiri, though his participation in that film's promotion is probably not going to happen.
