Renuka Shahane Has a Few Questions About Salman Khan's Black Buck Verdict
And no one really seems to have an asnwer.
Bollywood actor Salman Khan got acquitted of all charges by the Rajasthan High Court in blackbuck and chinkara poaching cases after 18 years of legal battle. And while his fans and friends and family were celebrating, actress Renuka Shahane, Khan's co-star from Hum Aapke Hain Koun, had a few things to say about the whole thing.
In fact she had a few very sharp questions for everyone. In a Facebook Post, Shahane slammed Khan's acquittal and questioned whether the court's judgement was a case of Buckworth-Lewis ( a pretty witty pun, that).
Here's the full text:
In 1998 a Black Buck & 2 Chinkaras (that are endangered species & therefore cannot be killed) were allegedly killed on a hunting trip that included Salman Khan, Saif Ali Khan, Amrita Singh, Tabu & Sonali Bendre. Somehow while the 'mor' was 'naaching' in their 'hivdas' they wanted to shoot some endangered animals. And they did & ate them too. But did they? Out of all only Salman was charged for killing a black buck & a chinkara. He also served time for the same in Jodhpur jail. No charges were framed against the others. The case carried on & on & on as our cases do for two main reasons 1) Having big bucks (sometimes even black bucks....different from the Black Buck who passed) or 2) Not having big bucks. Salman of course falls in the 1st category of big bucks ( I don't know their colour & we should not be racist by commenting) So now after 18 years he has been acquitted of charges in both cases. Some questions come to mind 1) Who killed the Black Buck & the Chinkaras? 2) Did the driver kill them? 3) Did nobody kill them? 4) Do judges decide according to Buckworth-Lewis method? ( What? Er...it's Duckworth-Lewis?) Sorry! 4) Who will pay for the mental torture that Salman has had to go through now that he has been declared not guilty? 5) Doesn't the nation want to know the truth? ( preferably very loudly) What? The nation doesnt want to know? No? Why? Oh you don't say.....busy spending bucks on Sultan....Er....then let it pass....yeah the Buck, what else? Dear, deer! Surreal!!!
