we do NOT need bollywood to promote sports. we need sports heroes to promote sports.

I am not ruling out Salman's star power. come'on who can?
I am saying let it give the sports a push from people associated and gave their best to that sports.
Sachin will be a better ambassader than Salman if it comes to it.



they are in talks for 2 more people
 

Salman Khan is only being appointed from the Bollywood segment, we are in talks with 2 other names in music & cricket: IOA

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


almost everybodyLOL.

Sharukh's fan promotion are on on Sony.. today.

No one promotes his movie after 1 month of release and Srk's Fan movie promotion was done on 15th Apr but that epi aired yesterday only n its not even 1 month if u take this thing in account. 


I kind of remember pardon my memory but quite a few movies do keep on with the promotion spree even after the movie release..

and regarding sultan.. well Salman's name is associated with Olympics now.. everybody fans and non fans are talking about Sultan connection. any publicity is good publicity.
may be I am lone ranger thinking this way.. or am I?Smile

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.





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.

Wresting owes it roots to small towns and villages.

I knew you would use wrestling as an example but that requires broadbasing too...same is the case with boxing which seems concentrated in and around Bhiwani and other centres in North India. Also commercialisation of these sports is easier when Bwood celebs associate their names such as Kabaddi League... or Pro-wrestling. I really see no point in letting this star power going to waste when it can be used to benefit sports.

Im really sorry if my comment above hurt anyone. Its a sensitive point that's why I was little hesitate to press it. Because some gonna be generalize and take it all in wrong way. Pardon! 


As some members mentioned here, Bollywood shouldn't represent sports event  because India has their own sportsmen's. They should represent Olympics & others sports event because they are well aware about the spirit and had performed in the same field. 

But why do they allow bollywood actor to sing National Anthem on recent event (World Cup) and there are many more if we count. they can hire sportsman for that occasion too. And I didn't see any objection during that time. 


Why to blame Salman? He didn't ask them to appoint him. It was their decision and its better if we stop blaming bollywood celebrities over someone else fondness towards them. They are popular in many ways, why not cash through their popularity. Itna toh haq banta hai desh ka. Its India citizen who made them popular and they have every right to use their popularity to gain more viewer thn usual. 


No doubt, Olympic is very popular. But how many of us are following the whole event in real without giving a miss? Majority of the Indian are into cricket. Anything about cricket drag them to on the TV. Nothing sort of that happen for Olympic, kabaddi & hockey. Recently, India hockey team was in final though they lost but still they were in final, no joke! When there is no proper promotion how that can create buzz and awareness for the public to know what the team is actually doing?!. 


Besides, we don't know much where Salman role gonna fit here. Just because of one article everyone ready with their bullets. What if he didn't promote his movies during the occassions? Yaar, its too early to jump on a conclusion. Just wait.

The stupidest argument:a category ambassador should be from the same category! Why have film actors promoting states and not tourist guides?
