Mumbai: Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor Wednesday hoped his superstar-friend Salman Khan, charged with culpable homicide not amounting to murder in the 2002 hit-and-run case, does not have to serve long years in jail.
If convicted of culpable homicide, the 47-year-old star faces up to 10 years in jail.
"It is a court matter so it is not fair to speculate on things. But I hope nothing like (10 years in jail) happens. My heart says nothing will happen," Kapoor said at an event here when asked to give his reaction on the charges framed against Salman by a local court earlier in the day.
Kapoor and Salman have shared screen space in films like `Deewana Mastana`, `Biwi No.1`, `No Entry`, `Salam-E-Ishq`, `Yuvraj` and `Wanted`.
