Mind-boggling: Hit-and-run accused Bollywood actor Salman Khan to inaugurate driving centre in Dubai
In a development which is both surprising and shocking, Bollywood actor Salman Khan, who has, well, not the best of reputations as a car driver, has been invited to inaugurate a Dubai-based driving school.

Salman would be inaugurating Belhasa Driving Centre's latest branch in Al Quoz, Dubai on Thursday evening at a private and invite-only event, as reported by Gulf News.

The Belhasa Driving Centre aims at promoting expert yet safe driving in the country. Along with Salman, UAE-based social media personality Rashid Belhasa has also been invited for the inauguration.

The facilities available at the centre include in-house eye testing, VIP training facilities in Range Rover and Mercedes motors as well as a training department dedicated to women.

However, one is compelled to wonder over the choice of Salman Khan over so many Bollywood personalities. In December 2015, Salman was acquitted in a 2002 hit-and-run case by the Bombay High Court due to lack of evidence.

The Sultan actor, in 2002, had allegedly in an inebriated state crashed his Toyota Land Cruiser SUV into a pavement where five homeless people were sleeping in the post suburb of Bandra West. One homeless man had died in that accident. The actor had, however, denied the charges and instead blamed his driver for the accident.

The driving school would do best by disassociating itself from an actor who's, well, not particularly admired for his driving skills.
