Salman Khan, one of the most popular stars in Bollywood, has been sentenced to five years in prison after being charged with culpable homicide..  In 2002, Khan was driving under the influence of alcohol when he crashed into a group of homeless men, hitting and killing one man before speeding off.

Khan has maintained since then that his driver Ashok Singh was driving at the time, when one of his tires burst, causing him to lose control.  Khan was granted a two-day interim bail, allowing his lawyers time to put together an appeal.
