White Rover to black Merc: Salman's ride to court
Salman left his Bandra residence around 9:45 am in a white Range Rover, with an entourage of media vehicles following him
On the Bandra-Worli Sea Link, the actor dismounted and was escorted into a black Mercedes by his bodyguard Shera, who accompanied him through the rest of the journey. This was their strategy to throw the media off their trail. Other bodyguards followed in another car.
Salman arrived at the court at 11 am. At the hearing, the actor chose to sit in the visitor’s area with his sisters Alvira Khan and Arpita Khan. The judge called him over to the box, saying, “Aap aaropi hain, please katghare main aa kar khade ho jaaiye (You are the accused, please come and stand in the dock).”
According to a source, Salman headed to the posh restaurant Nido for lunch after the hearing, accompanied by Arpita, Shera, man Friday Nadeem and a friend. Illustration/Amit Bandre, Text/Asira Tarannum
