Iulia Vantur, a Romanian TV anchor dubbed by the media Salman Khan’s “girlfriend”, has apparently showed her support for the Bollywood star as he was convicted of culpable homicide in a 2002 Mumbai hit-and-run case.
Salman Khan, 49, was sentenced to five years in jail for killing a homeless man in 2002.
While Salman Khan was awaiting his sentence in a Bombay court, Iulia Vantur posted an extremely emotional message on her Facebook account, a sign that although distance separates them , her thoughts were with him.
Iulia Vantur, 34, wrote: “Pray, Faith, God”.
Global media speculated that Iulia Vantur is Salman Khan’s girlfriend after she was surprised several times in the company of the Bollywood star, at his sister Arpita’s wedding, and in Romania, but they decided to retain discretion on their relationship.
Bollywood star Salman Khan has been convicted of culpable homicide in a 2002 Mumbai hit-and-run case.
Salman Khan, 49, has been sentenced to five years in jail for killing a homeless man.
The man was among five people who were run over in the incident.
One of the victims of the hit-and-run incident has said getting compensation is more important to him than Salman Khan’s conviction.
However, Abdullah Rauf Shaikh told Outlook magazine: “I have no hard feelings for him [Salman Khan]. I still watch his movies.”
Abdullah Rauf Shaikh, who lost a leg in the accident, also told the publication: “Nobody came to visit me in the last 13 years. I am forced to do petty jobs to support my family and face a lot of problems.”
“Compensation matters more than conviction, my health and work suffered,” he said.
Abdullah Rauf Shaikh was only 22-year-old when he lost his leg in the 2002 incident.
