Involvement of Bollywood star Salman Khan as the the Indian Olympic contingent’s goodwill ambassador had kicked up a storm with Yogeshwar Dutt and Milkha Singh questioning the move even as the IOA and some other athletes backed the decision.

After Dutt and Milkha, now former Indian Hockey player Viren Rasquinha has posted a tongue in cheek Tweet where he suggests coming in as brand ambassador for a movie promotion as debate over using an actor to promote sports rages on.

However, Sunil Gavaskar, Abhinav Bindra felt that Khan’s mass appeal will help raise awareness about the sports ahead of Rio Games.

        Well said, Viren. And Mr.Gavaskar, why don't you for once take an honest stance? Otherwise, its best to keep quiet and not blot your copy book further.
