It seems like Katrina Kaif feels Salman Khan and controversy go hand-in-hand. Katrina made the tongue-in-cheek comment at a recent event.
When the 32-year-old actress, during the wrap up party of Baar baar Dekho on Monday evening, was asked about her former boyfriend’s recent Olympics controversy, she said, “What is new with Salman Khan being entangled in a controversy.”
Controversy kicked off when the 50-year-old actor was recently appointed as the Goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent for the 2016 Summer Olympic to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Several members of the Indian sports fraternity have questioned the selection of the Dabangg actor as brand ambassador.
2012 London Olympics bronze medalist Yogeshwar Dutt made his displeasure known through a series of tweets barely an hour after the decision was announced.
Veteran athlete Milkha Singh also said that a sports person should have been appointed as the brand ambassador.
Salman’s father Salim Khan defended him on Twitter.
