Salman Khan has been found guilty in the Blackbuck poaching case by the Jodhpur court. The judge has sentenced him to five years of imprisonment. Salman had earlier spent 18 days in the jail and even spoke about the experience to Koel Purie on her show On the Couch with Koel. There's also a DNA interview where he spoke at length about his time inside the jail. We have them right here for you...
#On Koel's show, when asked as to how did he spend those days inside the jail, he had smiled and said, "A lot of fun." He then added, "I was blank, I was chilling. My only tension was the bathroom. And, the bin, and three, four times I have gone in and out of it. If somebody wants to put you in, you go in quietly. When you know you haven't done it, you go in head high."
#When asked about whether or not he shared a room with others, Salman said, "The police custody here, accident thing...There were like 9 or 1o rooms, and each room had 9-10 people in one room. One bathroom. One toilet. So that was...Then the rest of the space, the Central Jail. When you go to the judicial custody, you get your own suite there [smiles]." Salman was only allowed visitors once a week, as revealed by the actor himself. "You get one qaidi who'll give you chai in the morning. The same guy will come and get you the lunch. There's one guard outside. You get this one mug, that you have your chai in and wash it. Then you have daal chawal in it. You use it to take a shower. You use it to do whatever you wanna do," he explains further. Check out the video right here...
#While speaking to DNA in 2007, he had said, "It looks all very cool to an outsider. I entered there and saw prisoners who have been there for 20 years and totally forgotten, and it was like hell. The state of jail is so bad and when I offered to take care of some amenities, I was not allowed. I think some Human Rights guys should go there and check on these things. It is horrible for humans to stay in such a place."
#In the same interview, Salman had mentioned, "70 per cent of the prisoners today, I must know because I have already been to 3 or 4 jails already, are innocent. There are cases, when a young boy of about 14-15 is taken in for a murder case, and then he’s there for 20 odd years! They don’t even want to come outside because they are worse off outside."
#Salman further added in the interview, "I never spoke about these things because I didn’t want to involve anybody. Now it doesn’t seem to matter. I am not the kind to start crying in front of the TV camera. If I have to go to jail, I will go with a blank face, because that’s my destiny and if possible, only I can change it. If I had done any uncool thing, I know I will have to suffer. But if I haven’t I know I will get out of it.”
