It was a long wait, but an Indian Court on Wednesday cleared Bollywood actor Salman Khan of using illegal arms in the alleged poaching of two blackbuck antelope.  That was 19 years ago.

Fans of the 51-year-old actor cheered as Chief Judicial Magistrate Dalpat Singh Rajpuroti in a Jodhpur court acquitted him of the charges filed by the forest department.

“Thank you for all the support and good wishes,” Salman tweeted to his fans Wednesday.
