Renowned Film Writer Salim Khan took to twitter and opened his hearts out in favour of his son. In one of his tweet he directly targeted Sports Legend Milkha Singh. As recently, ‘Flying Sikh’ Jeev Milkha Singh says that Why to import a Bollywood celebrity to become the Goodwill Ambassador for The Rio Olympics. He actually wanted someone from the sports fraternity to be a Goodwill Ambassador. On his harsh remark over Salman, Salim khan says that he is not only Bollywood, it is the Indian film industry.

Not only Milkha Singh was against Salman, Even other sports personality too were against the IOA’s decision, who appointed Salman. To defend Salman on this, Salim Khan says, though he has not participated in sports formally but he is a first class Swimmer, Cyclist and Weight Lifter. It seems Salim Khan’s word will definitely let others keep quiet in the matter.
