Salim Khan defends Salman, says he’s an ‘A-Level’ sportsman

Veteran writer Salim Khan has defended his famous son, Salman Khan, who was appointed as the goodwill ambassador of the national contingent for the Rio Olympics.

Salim’s comments come a day after several current and former sports icons criticised the move of Salman representing India at a global sporting event like the Summer Olympics.

“Milkhaji it is not Bollywood it is the Indian Film Industry and that too the largest in the world. The same industry which resurrected you from fading away in oblivion” Salim said.

The co-writer of ‘Sholay’ also added that Salman is an ‘A-Level’ swimmer, cyclist and weight lifter.

“Salman Khan may not have competed but is an A level swimmer cyclist and weight lifter”

Milkha Singh had earlier criticised the move and asked why it was necessary to “import a person from Bollywood”.

“India has produced so many sportspersons who have given their sweat and blood for the country like PT Usha, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Ajit Pal and so many others. One of these could have been made a goodwill ambassador. What was the need to import a person from Bollywood?” Milkha Singh had said.

Meanwhile, Salim Khan also defended Salman on English News channel Times Now.

He said “Many sportsmen who fade away with time are revived via films. Sometimes we feel ashamed of the fact that we were unaware of such sportsmen in our country after watching the films made on them”

“Salman Khan is a popular person.. When he goes to schools, colleges and talks to students and children about the sports, they will definitely listen”

“Salman’s films sell way before they are released. If his film is good, of course they will sell, if not then it will flop like some of his projects have in the past. Salman Khan’s film doesn’t work only by his name, they work because of the entire team’s effort” he added.

The industry has come out strongly in support out Salman. Veteran filmmaker Subhash Ghai too has said the move to appoint Salman as the goodwill ambassador will inspire the youth of the country to take up sports.

  • Salim sir is right.

    Bhai is excellent in HIT & RUN
    Bhai is excellent in SHOOTING.

    Bhai is the best ambassador for Olympics.

  • @NVS but why in the worlld salman, only because his film sultan is comming, and he wants to advertise th efilm in international level, we all know how he came out of the court after murdering innocent people
    give us a break

  • what a joke?instead of that salim khan should have said he is a A-grade criminal and woman beater.

    what a shameful statement from a film writer to a legend like milkha singh.really why salim khan is trying to show himself as the father of salman khan rather than showing his own identity?what salman khan did in his entire life besides remaking masala films and doing crimes?why he is so desperate for salman to be ambassador of olympic team or he is trying to overshadow all his crimes did in past through this.

    how can he tell salman a sportsman?in his gorilla dance steps,salman can’t even move his body and dancing like paralysed person?and his body also doesn’t looks like a sportsman accumulated and welled with extra fats! jokes is at it’s peak,ROFL.

    @hrithik,yes mimicry of an actor in funny way in OSO is extremely insulting,but insulting a legend like milkha singh is must be exciting and so appropriate for you.what extra “lot more” salim khan has seen that we can’t imagine?can you list them ?is that “lot more” refers to salman’s past decade’s strings of flops/disasters that you want to point?,ROFL.

    @anand,salman should be the member of prison campaighn,as he is expert among all to live there and visiting courts.your non actor used to give back to back flops still he gained his movies,then just think when KING KHAN will bounce back,then salman will definitely will retire from bollywood.

    @boyzone,but tell me 1st as you’re from overseas then how you know salman?as nobody knows salman outside India as you said you don’t know who is milkha,mary com?no logic from non actor fanbase found.

    @nvs,you’re so happy with KING KHAN’S just one flops,you have no other answer except from one word FAN.but WE’RE generous that WE have no time to write the no. of flops that your non actor(physically ugly gorilla and mentally psycho criminal) has given to bollywood,that’s really beyond the word called “shame”,ROFL.

  • I used to respect salim khan bt after his statement against the iconic legend milkha singh sounds totally foolish seems like as if he only think his son is better or as good as ny1 bt sorry he’s not. He s just a movie star can never be compared with the sporting legend. Bollywood movies are watched in how many countries? Not even in 20% country of which joins Olympic games.
    Salman Khan is one of the most popular star of our country. He can help in funding marketing sponsorship through his name bt can never encourage others to take sports. For instance here salman fans who bark.will they take boxing? Will they take shooting? Never bt sportsperson fan ll take d sport of his/her favourite.
    Salman fans can only watch thinking salman will be seen in tv bt once he’s not der dey ll not even watch those games n ll change d channel.
    So may b sportsperson ll get less attention den salman bt surely it ll bring more talent in sport.

  • @Yuvraj, @boyzone very well said bro….

    I want to ask just one question to all those stupid’s who were barking here and saying that Salman should not be appointed as Ambassador because he is an actor and not a sportsperson, then please tell me why Veteran Actor Late Sunil Dutt was appointed as a “Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports” does he belongs to sports background, No, so why there is so much argument for Salman…He is not appoint to bring medals to India, he is appoint to spread awareness about Olympics and to generate good funds….

  • @Raj idiot the Olympic committee has selected him as brand ambassador,he wasn’t selected by his own to promote sultan.You Idiot!

  • @Yamraj, what happened to your lallu bhai in last decade? Yes he definitely ran his haters mind Last decade and his haters and audience shoot him by making all his films flops and disasters back to back. Who can forget epic flops and disasters like Har dip jo pyaar karega, shaadi kar me phas gaya, marigold, yovraj which is ironically your own name 😂😂, main aur Mrs. Khanna, veer, etc???

  • @sss, I loved the way you showed the real face of remake star fans. Keep going. I hope you visit here more and more to kick these 2010 debutant new commer’s

  • Besides Sultan is releasing long before the olympics you dumb morons. Don’t let your disappointment in Fan cause you to be more stupid than you are.

  • @xzone : What is wrong in father defending his son ? Milkha Singh indirectly attacked Salman so Salim sir reply or comments are very much justified. You defend your idol for protecting his daughter from a security guy (God knows the reality) so another father cannot support his son just because that father is not SRK or your idol ? When will you shed this skin (hypocrite) ? was FAN debacle was not enough ?

  • @sss : You need to go and ask your SRK who Salim Khan is, he will tell you his status, position and experience. Bina masala ki complan, first watch FAN for 5 more times and try to save from being a Flop then come and talk about Megastar !!!!!!! Keep ranting garbage time has again and often shown your aukaat you punny fan of dunia ka sabse chota don !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • @hrithik,one flop can’t change the fate of A MEGASTAR.if so then your 2010-DEBUTANT star would have disappeared after the epic 40cr disaster veer and jail ho and the last glorious decade he has.but did that happened?,ROFL.and watching FAN 5 TIMES is not a big deal as I already watched IT 7 times in theatres that you couldn’t even watch salman movies at least one time during veer,jail ho and the series of flops that he gave during last decades.what about that?A PERSON’S MOVIE nearly collects around 90cr with out any holiday,song ,heroine,most importantly with out any ENTERTAINMENT.that’s enough to say undoubtedly HE is the biggest megastar of earth.if salman/any other big superstar would have did FAN,then IT would not have cross even 50cr though he is a non actor.take the carrier of your flopstar,his flops are more than double than the success he had achieved,he is so much appropriate of being called a flopstar not KING KHAN WHO gave just one flop after 12 YEARS under which period your star had given already 12+ flops.STILL our megastar CAN’T BREAK THE RECORD OF 40cr disaster veer,how many times you had watched that movie in theatre or watched in laptop which has songs,heroine,entertainment still is a big disaster,shame at it’s peak.

    and what you said?defending own children is not a crime.yeah that’s why you trolled KING KHAN during wankhede incident but when WE did the same now,then you’re trying to change your colour.now what happened cheers up hypocrite.last but not least unlike Aryan,Suhana salman is not an innocent rather than he is an a-level convicted criminal for which he shouldn’t represent India that’s what legends like Milkha singh indirectly wants to say what his FATHER don’t try to understand.but surely salim khan lost his every respect with that comment.what kind of cheap personality he is ,that he insulted a legend,this s the reality of criminal family and only in India things like that can be happened,ROFL.and yeah that CHOTA DON made your idol nanga in 2006,enjoy.
