While Salman was appointed as the ambassador; many sports icon criticized the move of the Indian Olympic Association(IOA) on Sunday. Many of them were against the idea of selecting the actor as the brand ambassador and interestingly, an online petition on Change.org, urging Salman to be banned from being the Goodwill ambassador, has been started also.
Surprisingly it’s Aishwarya Rai, who has started this petition and hold on, it’s not ‘The Aishwarya Rai Bachchan’ actress. The girl also claimed that Khan had an alleged history of abusing women and killing innocent people. Well, some came in support of the actor while some were against the same.
