In a topsy-turvy 2002 Mumbai hit-and-run case that succeeded to keep the Bollywood Dabangg  on toe for thirteen long years, the verdict is finally out! A Mumbai Sessions Court held the actor guilty of all charges, sentencing him five years of jail term.

He has been convicted under Section 304(2) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), i.e., culpable homicide not amounting to murder. As the court delivered the verdict, Salman had tears in his eyes and stood silently in the dock.

The prosecution had claimed that Khan's rash driving claimed the life of Nurullah Mehboob Sharif and injured Kalim Mohammed Pathan, Munna Malai Khan, Abdullah Rauf Shaikh and Muslim Shaikh.

The high profile case that paved the way through 28 witnesses, sustained enigma in the hearts of  millions of fans like some typical high-tension drama film.

The social media reacted very strongly to the verdict and hailed the Indian judiciary...

While the other star-struck section felt sorry for the superstar.

So it turns out that Sania Mirza is not very good at "Physics, err...Chemistry".

Wonder how much she scored in school? We don't exactly know, but perhaps this little episode might give you some idea. 

Here's what happened. Mirza was a part of KBC Telugu which is hosted by Akkineni Nagarjuna.

 

During the show, Nagarjuna asked her a simple question of chemistry: "Sodium Chloride is the chemical name of which of these substances?" If that wasn't easy enough already, turned out her 'test' had MCQs. So she was given options to pick her answer from: Sugar, Salt, Water or Camphor. 

Her answer: Water!

One can perhaps understand how someone might not know that NaCl is salt. But how one who has been to school can imagine water being anything but H2O is pretty baffling. 

She had to use one of her lifelines on the show — take audience help — to arrive at the right answer. 

Facepalm, Sania! 

At least, Alia Bhatt, who thought Prithviraj Chouhan was the Prime Minister of India didn't have four options to choose from.
