Mumbai, Aug 23 (IANS) Suniel Shetty is confused about being appointed the brand ambassador for hockey, particularly after watching 'Chak De! India' where Shah Rukh Khan plays the coach of a women's hockey team to great effect.

'I seriously want them to reconsider my appointment. I mean, there I was being appointed brand ambassador for the game while Shah Rukh Khan is bringing hockey back into favour like nobody's business,' Suniel told IANS.

'It was an awesome experience to be given the responsibility to revive the game. I may be a right choice. But after seeing 'Chak De!', I think Shah Rukh is a much better choice for representing hockey for the country,' he added.

Suniel is truly impressed by Shah Rukh's performance.

'I saw the film twice and I'm completely bowled over by Shah Rukh's performance. He could play anything. But he chooses to play this serious troubled hockey coach. I think Shah Rukh has his stardom for a good 50 years more. 'Chak De!' proves it.'

Meanwhile, Suniel is happy for Sanjay Dutt, who has been granted interim bail by the Supreme Court in the Mumbai blasts case.

'It's really heartening to hear Sanju is being released on interim bail. What do I say? It's an answer to all the prayers that people have sent for him. It's the janta's goodwill that has kept him going.

'It's Sanju who has brought the concept of Gandhigiri to people. And I believe he truly believes in peace. Sanju is totally converted.'
