Salman Khan sent a letter to me on Monday thanking the IOA for appointing him as the Goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent at Rio Olympics. He has requested me to send the details of all Indian Rio Olympians like their PAN number. He said in the letter he will give Rs 101000 (one lakh one thousand) to each one of them. He is sending a cheque in the name of all the Rio Olympians to the IOA so that we can give them to the athletes. He is such a big celebrity superstar, but he follows protocol. He wants to do his job through the IOA. We are euphoric to have appointed him as the Goodwill ambassador.

On the other hand, just like every other time; Sachin Tendulkar, the cricketing legend has got BMWs for the four athletes that did incredibly well in the recent Rio Olympics 2016 and who shared this year’s Khel Ratna Award together.
