It seems like whatever Salman Khan does becomes a controversy. Recently, Salman was selected as the goodwill ambassador for the Rio Olympics. This opened several discussions regarding the selection of the superstar. Big sports personality, Milkha Singh also suggested the board to find the replacement. At a recent interview, Salman was asked regarding the same, furious Salman shushed everyone who spoke against him with his reply.
He said, “The media should have done the same when Sachin and Rahman were roped in. Why didn’t that happen? Why didn’t the media give them the same coverage that they gave me? In their case too, while one isn’t a sportsperson, the other has only played one sport. Does Rahman need a state level certificate or a national-level medal to be called a sportsperson? In fact, all the kids who have tried out certain sports and haven’t won a medal, aren’t sportspersons? So why just pick me?
Questioned about his criminal records, he said, “So you have issues with one person who has court cases becoming the Olympics goodwill ambassador. But there are so many politicians who have court cases against them? So I am ready to leave my post as the ambassador if the politicians also leave. “ Well, that surely shut everyone up!
