Hordes of fans waiting outside the court on Saturday burst into celebrations after hearing the result, beating drums and chanting Khan's name. He was tried and acquitted on a charge of killing a homeless man while driving drunk in Mumbai, and was also accused of domestic abuse by a former girlfriend, the actress Aishwarya Rai. He has spent a total of 20 days in the jail in 1998, 2006, 2007 and this time.

Four other Bollywood stars - Saif Ali Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tabu and Neelam Kothari - who were also accused in the case were acquitted due to lack of evidence.

Mahesh Bora, a lawyer for Khan, told reporters a judge had signed a bail form. The Bollywood superstar was sentenced to five years in jail and fined Rs 10,000. He was among 134 judges transferred by the Registrar General of the High Court.
