“We are in communication with Sachin Tendulkar and A R Rahman to become brand ambassadors of the Indian Olympic contingent. We are yet to get their reply,” said Indian Olympic Association (IOA) vice president Tarlochan Singh.
“We will rope in more people. Salman Khan will also remain,” he added.
Salman’s appointment as goodwill ambassador had kicked up a storm last week when star wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and sprint legend Milkha Singh questioned the move even though the IOA and some other athletes backed the decision.
Salman, who is playing the role of a wrestler in his upcoming film ‘Sultan’, was named goodwill ambassador in the presence of star boxer M C Mary Kom, hockey captain Sardar Singh, and shooter Apurvi Chandela.
