Yo­gesh­war Ques­tions Sal­man’s Ap­point­ment

The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

Sal­man Khan’s ap­point­ment as the In­dian Olympic con­tin­gent’s good­will am­bas­sador caused a mi­nor con­tro­versy with wrestler Yo­gesh­war Dutt and sprint leg­end Milkha Singh ques­tion­ing the move. The po­si­tion is it­self un­prece­dented. “Every­body has the right to pro­mote movies in In­dia, but Olympics is not a place to pro­mote films,” Yo­gesh­war tweeted in Hindi, pos­si­bly re­fer­ring to Sal­man’s new movie in which he plays a wrestler. —PTI
