Salman Khan’s life has been one of the biggest ironies in Bollywood. Every morning you can spot hundreds of fans waiting outside his residence to catch a glimpse of him.

A Mumbai court will take up the 2002 hit-and-run case in which Salman, apparently in an inebriated state drove into a bakery in Mumbai killing one and injuring three others. What came as a rude shock to the actor was that his review petition, which he had submitted on June 24, was rejected by the Mumbai Sessions Court.

Salman Khan will face one of the biggest trials of his life starting this Friday. A Mumbai court will take up the 2002 hit-and-run case in which Salman, apparently in an inebriated state drove into a bakery in Mumbai killing one and injuring three others. What came as a rude shock to the actor was that his review petition, which he had submitted on June 24, was rejected by the Mumbai Sessions Court.

As a consequence of this rejection, Salman will now be tried for culpable homicide not amounting to murder under Section 304 of IPC. If the Bollywood superstar is convicted in the case, he will face imprisonment up to ten years.

Salman Khan was driving his Land Cruiser on September 28, 2002 in a drunken state despite repeated warnings from his designated driver, the police bodyguard Ravindra Patil. He ignored his alerts and kept at the wheel. Soon he crushed a group of people sleeping on the pavement outside a bakery in suburban Bandra. His driver had been a witness to the crime and had given his statement before a court of law. However, the driver went missing mysteriously after a few days and was found dead later.

Salman Khan had appealed against the metropolitan magistrate`s order and wanted a retrial of the case under the stringent charge of culpable homicide not amounting to murder. In a strongly worded statement, Salman’s lawyer had called his judgment "erroneous, bad in law and contrary to evidence on record". This was because the metropolitan magistrate invoked the Section 304 (III) of the IPC instead of the less severe Section 304A of IPC against the star.
