For god sake why did anyone oppose the decision to appoint Salman Khan as India’s goodwill ambassador at Rio Olympics. Is there a written Rule that Goodwill Ambassador should be a Sportsman? Will not that defeat the purpose, a ambassador suppose to serve, to reach to as many people possible. In that respect, i say and agree with the Ace Boxing Champ Vijender Singh that this is the best decision considering the the Reach you got with Salman Khan.

The reach that Salman bhai has, I don’t think anyone else in the country can match that level right now. He is 100 per cent perfect for the role of a goodwill ambassador for the Rio Olympics. I don’t think all these sports will come forward by themselves, and so it needs the backing of someone like Salman. And, he is not taking a single penny for it. So why are people having a problem? http://www.dnaindia.com/sport/report-nobody-can-match-salman-s-reach-says-vijender-singh-2205804

“India has produced so many sportspersons who have given their sweat and blood for the country like PT Usha, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Ajit Pal and so many others. One of these could have been made a goodwill ambassador. What was the need to import a person from Bollywood?” Milkha singh

I respect Milkha singh as one of the greatest sportsman india has ever produced, but that doesn’t mean his idea will be great as well. With all due respect sir, we have already tested your prescribed sollution to increase the reach and fame of sports other than cricket but nothing has happened till yet. So why not welcome some new moves, don’t you agree.

“Everybody has the right to promote movies in India, but Olympics is not a place to promote films,” “Can anyone tell me what is the role of goodwill ambassador? Why are you fooling the public?” Yogeshwar Dutt

He is  Lone Bollywood  superstar in India, he doesn’t need any undue promotions, i guess. One should not be disrespectful to someone because he is from different field. He has done remarkably well and achieved a lot in his life by his sheer determination and talent. I believe He is the best and must, if you really want other sports to get some name-Fame.
