Salman Khan was acquitted by the Bombay High Court of all the charges in the 2002 hit and run case on December 10. "I am happy for him. I don't think one needs to talk too much about the verdict and the legal situation. As an individual and a friend, I am happy for him. I am sure he is relieved," said Kabir
"People are saying he has just walked away. He has been in the jail for few days. He has spent over Rs 20-25 crores (on the case). Besides this, what about the tension that he and everyone went through all this time?" Salim Khan said
