The time passed, he had forgotten everything about his love as it happens with every person in love when they gets fails but one day he felt that the god had sent an angel for him and he realized that she had landed from heaven with blue eyes for him only and let his kind heart melted for the beautiful ‘Aishwarya Rai’ and in the year 1999, he began dating Bollywood actress Aishwarya Rai. He was in love with her and he felt every moment that she is for her as each and every person in this world finds their love one day and one fells that hey have won the battle and does not require other than love.
They were seemed together in many restaurants, party and occasions and Salman was deeply lost in her. And he tried all his best to convey his gratitude love as he knows “pyaar kiya to darna kya” from his movie which has gave lesson to many for not to fear if you had loved someone; and their relationship was often reported in the media until the couple separated in 2001. In 2000, Khan acted in six films, most of which failed critically and commercially, except for the two moderately successful films, Har Dil Jo Pyar Karega and Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, both of which co-starred Rani Mukerji and Preity Zinta. His performance in Chori Chori Chupke Chupke, the release of which was delayed until 2001, was received well. The film was one of the first Bollywood movies to handle the issue of surrogate childbirth; Khan played the role of a rich industrialist, who hires a surrogate mother after his wife becomes infertile. Critics noted his turn towards a more serious role, which reportedly had more substance in comparison to his previous roles. In 2002 he starred in the delayed release ‘Hum Tumhare Hain Sanam’ which was semi-hit at the box office and the reason for this may be because Salman was upset along with the unfair about his love life. His turbulent relationship with actress Aishwarya Rai was a well publicised topic in the Indian media, and had constantly filled gossip columns. After the Chalte Chalte fiasco in 2002 and the aftermath, Salman Khan and Aishwarya Rai's 2-year-long affair was breathing its last. Salman Khan had other issues to address as well in the following year apart from the fact that Aishwarya Rai has dumped him. After their complete break-up in March 2002, Aishwarya Rai accused him of harassing her. She claimed that Khan had not been able to come to terms with their break-up and was hounding her; her parents lodged a complaint against him. The man never dreamed of this unexpected day and had the last hope as he was in love truly but it is what actually happened with him in actual in the movie story “ Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam” 1999, where his love fails and her love goes to one to whom her father had chosen. Both Aishwarya and Salman played a very awesome role by obeying the word of their parents ,also in real life Aiswarya gone with the decision of her parents and Salman kept his kind hearted in peace with what he lost finally in the happiness of other. He lost his angel for which he had dreamed of and may be because of this reason being in tense on 28 September 2002 early morning , his special utility vehicle (SUV) rammed speeding on a pavement outside the American Express Bakery in Mumbai, killing one and causing serious injuries to three persons. And soon after the mishap Salman stood out of the vehicle to help the injured incidentally at American Express bakery from where he used to get his bread from and also the laundry where the accident took place is where he get his clothes cleaned.But the crowd started throwing stones at him.He was hurt at several places all over his body. In the melee, somebody even snatched his wristwatch and wallet too. He wanted to rush the people to Holy Family hospital close by. As in the past he had rushed accident victims to hospitals. But that night he had no choice but leave much against his wishes. He cried a lot. The site of the accident keeps coming back like in a filmi flashback in his mind.”And really this makes a sense because even in our life when ever we come across this kind of mishap with any one the crowd there used to jump for the fight rather understanding and helping the injured first. And because of this reason a police officer who testified in the court said that the actor was untraceable after the accident and was later found at his lawyer's house.
On Saturday morning Salman surrendered before the Bandra police after eight hours of the accident. He was taken for medical tests at JJ hospital to determine the alcohol content in his blood while his lawyer Waris Pathan secured bail in the Bandra police station.The Bandra police finally managed to arrest Salman based on the statement given by Ravindra Patil who was a young boy from Satara, Patil who joined the Mumbai Police as a constable and was trained as a commando to join the Special Operations Squad (SOS) which has a primary duty of guarding VIPs. It is Patil who complained and registered a FIR against Salman hit and run case that night saying that the actor was driving the SUV at the time of the accident. On the fateful night, Patil was travelling in the SUV with Salman behind wheels. Immediately after the accident, finding Salman away from the spot, Patil rushed to the Bandra police station to fulfill his duties as a citizen as well as a policeman for the first information report (FIR) and he gave his statement to the police based on which the FIR was registered. He later stood by his statement in the court at the time of trial.
The name of the deceased is Noor Ullah Khan (38). The three injured persons have been admitted to the Bhabha hospital. One has been discharged after being treated for his injuries. The deceased and the injured were employees of A1 Bakery and were sleeping outside American Express Bakery. Where the witnesses said Salman's Land Cruiser was completely destroyed, and is at present parked in the Bandra police station. At the time of the accident, Salman was returning from the J W Mariott Hotel in Juhu and heading for his home in Bandra. He was accompanied by singer Kamaal Khan and Ravindra Patil, a bodyguard provided by the Mumbai police recently after the actor had complained of threats from the underworld.

On the third day after his arrest and bail, Salman was booked under provisions of IPC, Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, and Bombay Prohibition Act, 1949. The Mumbai Police invoked section 304-II of IPC, i.e., culpable homicide not amounting to murder which leads to a punishment of 10 years imprisonment.

Salman Khan got arrested after he surrendered again before the Bandra police. While hearing a PIL, the High Court had directed Salman to pay Rs 19 lakh as compensation within two weeks. Out of the total amount, Rs 10 lakh was to be given to the family of Nurullah Mehboob Sharif, who died in the accident. And his parents went to see him at Thane central jail, there he was lodged in a ten-by-six room, which he shared with hardened criminals. He slept on a dhurry. The only thing in the room was a pot for water. It was painful to see him in that condition because for a man who lived life on his own terms. Salim never short of words, but that day, he couldn’t bring himself to say anything and he asked his wife not to cry in presence of child and asked to put up a brave front. Finally, when Salman came, his father couldn’t bear to see him and left quietly. Salman afterwards told his mother, “Don’t bring Dad next time.” That night, Salim sat by the window with a drink and suddenly his eyes turned moist and tears started flowing. And he remain quiet just because in their culture, fathers don’t express emotion. There’s always a communication gap between fathers and sons. There’s no question that life is a great teacher. The jail experience brought about a big change in Salman and a realisation that life without freedom is nothing. He now recognises the value of a free life.

A chargesheet was filed by the Mumbai police against Salman Khan in Bandra magistrate's court. Following this, Salman was granted bail on October 24 by the sessions court.
Charges of culpable homicide were laid against him, but later dropped, and he was found not guilty. However, he will still have to stand trial for a series of lesser charges pertaining to the incident and there he got into legal troubles. Apparently his endless tantrums traumatized Aishwarya enough to give a press conference in spring 2003 where she declared that she would never work with him again for personal reasons.Khan's following releases failed at the box office until he made a comeback in 2003 with Tere Naam. The film was a major earner and his performance was praised by critics, with film critic Taran Adarsh noting, "Salman Khan is exceptional in a role that fits him to the T. He breathes fire in sequences that demand uneasiness. But beneath the tough exterior lies a vulnerable person and this facet in particular comes to the fore in the latter reels. His emotional outbursts are splendid.
