New Delhi: Uttarakhand Chief Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank today came out in support of mega star Amitabh Bachchan saying he is an artist and it was not correct to politicise everything associated with the film-star.

"I have very old relations with Amitabh Bachchan. He is a great artist who is a pride for the country and has contributed to its honour. I do not understand why everything is politicised concerning him," Nishank told reporters here today.

The chief minister, however, parried a question whether BJP-ruled Uttarakhand would appoint Bachchan as its brand ambassador to promote tourism in the state.

Bachchan is the brand ambassador of BJP ruled Gujarat and is in the midst of a controversy over objections by some Congress workers in Maharashtra to his presence at a government function in Mumbai last week.
