Seven others, including actors Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam, were on trial for the alleged poaching; however, Khan was the only person convicted. Nevertheless, if brand Salman Khan has not taken a beating because of all the controversies and court cases is there any reason to believe it will now?

"However, since knowledge of the blackbuck case is public for around two decades, the impact on Salman or the brands endorsed by him may not be that severe".

This is the fourth case filed against the actor in connection with poaching animals during the filming of the 1998 movie Hum Saath Saath Hain. But Mr. Khan appealed the decision, and the sentence was suspended.

"While Salman Khan gets to go back home to his movie star life for now, black bucks were made to pay the highest price, with their lives", Manilal Valliyate, chief executive of PETA India, said in a statement. Both the Khans are among the world's top 10 best-paid actors. But he has also had a reputation as a Bollywood bad boy, known for his run-ins with the law - including a fatal vehicle accident - and his troubled relationships with women.
