Olympic ambassador row:​ Salman Khan's father Salim lashes out at Milkha Singh

New Delhi: Prominent Bollywood scriptwriter Salim Khan on Monday defended his actor-son Salman Khan's appointment as goodwill ambassador of the Indian Olympic contingent.

In fact, Salim lashed out at legendary Indian athlete Milkha Singh, who raised strong objections saying that sports, especially Olympics don't need Bollywood stars as ambassadors.

Salim took to micro-blogging site Twitter to criticise Milkha.

Earlier, wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and Milkha had raised eyebrows over India Olympic Association's (IOA) decision to go with the 50-year-old Bollywood superstar over a sportsperson.
