When Salman Khan got made as the Goodwill ambassador of Rio Olympics in 2013, coz obviously Hell broke loose he ISN’T a sportsperson. There were requests filed against Salman where sport personas like Milkha Singh lashed out at the direction for making an unimportant pick with Salman. The truth is, London Olympics wrestling bronze medallist Yogeshwar Dutt too expressed his displeasure with some tweets barely, within an hour after the selection was announced. Yes!
Did ’t that happen? Why did’t the media give them the same coverage that they gave me? In their own case also, while one is’t a sportsperson, the other has just played one sport. Does Rahman need a state grade certification or a national -level medal to be called a sportsperson. In fact, all the kids who’ve tried out particular sports and have’t won a medal, are’t sportspersons? Why just pick on me?
Request Salman he retorts and if the controversy was fueled by his criminal records, “So you’ve got issues with one man who has court cases. But there are so many politicians who’ve court cases against them? Desh zyaada important hai ya olympics? Only liye toh deksh is significant. So I ‘m ready if the politicians also leave to leave my post as the ambassador. There are many individuals that have corruption, scams and rapes but they are still there?”
Whoa! Now that ’s one interview that is explosive. Your ideas?
