Bollywood star Salman Khan has pleaded not guilty after being charged by police over the death of a homeless man in a car crash.

The STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART actor, 37 - who last month (03SEP03) had more serious charges of culpable homicide against him dropped - faces ten charges relating to the incident last September (02), including causing death by negligent driving.

One of India's top stars, Khan allegedly drove his car into a Bombay bakery, killing a man who was sleeping outside and injuring four others.

His lawyer DEEPESH MEHTA comments, "We will now see what happens at the trial which begins on October 21 (03)."
