Ever since the actor was sentenced to five years, his friends and colleagues from the industry swarmed at the Galaxy Apartments, Salman's residence in Mumbai to extend their support to his family.

Mahesh Bora, a lawyer for Khan, told reporters a judge had signed a bail form of 50,000 rupuees ($770).

The actor was driven by the police escort to the Jodhpur airport from where he flew to Mumbai. Furthermore, past year Forbes ranked Salman Khan as the ninth highest-paid actor in the world. The case named two more, Dushyant Singh and Dinesh Gawre, as accused, both working for Salman Khan. His bodyguard Shera was also spotted accompanying the actor in his auto as they headed to the airport. Tabu and Neelam both use just one name.

Salman says he did not shoot the two blackbucks.

Khan has almost $90 million riding on his projects in coming months with at least three films in the pipeline, analysts say. "This has nothing to do with Khan's personality as an actor", he said.

Khan, who has starred in more than 90 Hindi-language films, is likely to be set free later on Saturday after spending two days in prison.

The video reveals dozens of TV news anchors reciting the exact same script warning against "biased and false news". That's the goal of these announcements: "to reiterate our commitment to reporting facts in the pursuit of truth".

The Bollywood actor's latest blockbuster, Tiger Zinda Hai (Tiger is alive) collected some $85m worldwide.

In 1998, Salman spent a week in prison after being accused of using unlicensed arms to shoot the black bucks. On Thursday he was sentenced to a 5-year jail term.

In 2017, he was discharged of five similar offences except for the death of these animals he accidentally shot while filming India box-office movie, "Hum Saath Saath Hain" in 1998.

But while his fans and producers of costly upcoming films may be relieved, Khan still faces a major courtroom drama. But the actor's legal travails are not yet over as the case will come up for hearing again on May 7.

The judges found that prosecutors had failed to prove charges of culpable homicide.

The state government has appealed against that order in the Supreme Court.
