Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt reacted angrily on Saturday to the news of actor Salman Khan being selected the goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent for Rio Olympics.
London Olympic bronze medallist Dutt, 33, asked on Twitter what Khan had done in the field of sports. He also said the Olympics was not a place for an actor to promote his movies.
Dutt responded to Khan’s fans on Twitter who asked the Indian wrestler to focus on his performance.
Edelweiss Tokio Life Insurance of financial conglomerate Edelweiss Group, which will be the principal sponsor of the Indian contingent at Rio Olympics, announced Khan’s new role on Saturday.
