However, now after the management also decided to bring Sachin Tendulkar and A.R Rahman on board as Goodwill ambassadors, a furious Salman Khan questioned media’s silence over the issue.

Addressing the media, Salman Khan said that “I don’t understand that why those eminent sports stars are quite now who were earlier dissatisfied with my appointment as a Goodwill ambassador. I believe that A.R Rahman is also not from sports arena so why there no hue and cry now?”
