But aren't you jumping the gun too fast...what if an AB SR like sustained Olympic promotion campaign is planned for Salman too. All I am saying is that we should hold our horses before passing judgement on this decision too soon cause who knows what benefits it may reap. Maybe Salman is genuinely driven by a desire to do something meaningful in the sporting world with his power, something beyond just a one off promotional stint for his movie.

Lets give the man a chance atleast before decrying him on the grounds of his nefarious past.

Read IOA's statement and charter on it. One-off event. For motivating the players, he has been hired. Umm, yup, would love to see this one.

But didn't they just tweet about it being promotional and them recruiting some musician too??

P.S. I have not read the charter obviously so no idea about their actual plan. I would have preferred it as being atleast a long term promotional strategy. Lets see what it amounts too.

P.P.S I really do not think the awareness is sufficient, I am sure the TRPs for Olympics must have been abysmal in comparison to say an IPL or cricket World Cup...so there is always scope for improvement especially in a country as populated as India which those esteemed sportspersons cannot ensure and a Salman has to be relied on for.

Bigul ur bang on. Clap Thumbs Up

@genie : Dude, W*F? You met Roger twice, Kashyap DM-end you, met Sachin as well right? Now what else? LOL

OT : I agree. Olympics is huge in itself. It doesnt need a Bollywood star. People who intend to follow it will anyway do so. All the extra attention it would be gaining will be due to the performances. LOL

Kashyap is a cutie , just tweet him, he usually responds. One of my friends be like , "he has no fans" , hence he responds. I am basically that annoying Sports fan. Sachin too. It's the London city. LOL

Olympics go for 2 months. We have 4 major categories. The moment these guys start winning medals , it buzzes. Unlike cricket or IPL which are so India-centric. The events we compete in are hugely popular. Everyone tunes in to see who be holding the flat or for shooting/hockey/badminton and grappling. 


Bigul- Till the association sustain, we cannot comment no? We cannot deny the political influence on IOA.

When Amitabh was appointed as face for polio eradication were there other personalities with better pan Indian appeal from Scientific field.. None I guess.

but when it comes to Olympics now are there better personalities who had a connect with that field and have a pan Indian appeal.. Yes! Bhaichung Bhutia, Mary Mom, Sania Mirza, Sania nehwal, Paes,  Rathore, sushil kumar, Milkha singh, Vishwanathan Anand and so on.

This is NOT about Salman or his shady past... This is about Sports which has got their own ambassadors.. these sports already have to live under the shadows of cricket. why drag bollywood too and take away the little limelight they are managing to claw their way in?

and why as a promotion platform.. maybe Salman is doing it as goodwill measure indeed but there is Sultan in the background and that is kind of disrespectful to the the ultimate dreams of the athletes.. their dream serving as a movie promotion platform.

Saying Salman is doing it for Promotion of Sultan is itself illogical . Sultan is releasing one month before Olympics . Who promotes movie after 1 month of it's release ? LOLLOL

I think the problem here is that you are looking at it from a very elitist point of view, take a sub-altern viewpoint instead and you will realise that most of these sportsmen are unknown at the grassroots even now. If we want sports to be taken seriously, it needs to be a bottom up effort too so the positive spinoff effects of Salman's wider appeal should not be ruled out.
