With the Sessions court verdict out for the hit-and-run case, as per the reports, wherein the Bollywood superstar Salman Khan might face upto 10 years of jail, it has kind of sent a shock wave in the industry! And why not? After all Salman is one of the most influential celebrities of Bollywood around, who has the power to turnaround almost anything. Though the Sessions court has given its judgement over the 12-year old case, the star may appeal to higher court. While the final decision is still awaited as to whether Salman will face the jail sentence or not, we take a look at how it will impact the industry overall (if he ever faces the jail term).

Box-office business:Since the superstar is known for churning out blockbusters & money-spinners and has reportedly an estimated Rs. 300 crore riding on his films already, we wonder how much impact it will have on Box-office business, considering he has biggies like PREM RATAN DHAN PAYO, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, SHUDDHI, DABANGG 3 and others lined up.
