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.
