Katrina Kaif jokes about Salman Khan’s Rio Olympics controversy


Salman Khan is yet again in the midst of a controversy. The superstar’s appointment as the Goodwill Ambassador for Rio Olympics 2016 has triggered a row, with sports personalities like splinter Milkha Singh wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt expressing their disappointment over the Indian Olympic Association.

While Salman’s father veteran scriptwriter Salim Khan lashed out at Milkha Singh for criticising IOA’s decision, the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ actor’s close friend and ex-lover Katrina Kaif seemed to be least bothered by it.

According to a report in MissMalini.com, when Katrina was asked about the controversy, the actress had a forthright comment. “Salman ko leke controversy hai woh naya cheez hai kya? (What is new with Salman Khan being entangled in a controversy?” she said.

Katrina indeed knows her former lover very well. Salman is no wonder controversy’s favourite child. As soon as one controversy ends, he finds himself embroiled in another.

Katrina was speaking at the wrap-up party of her upcoming film ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ which was held on Monday night. The ‘Fitoor’ actress, however, refused to give her opinion on what she thought about Salman’s appointment as India’s Goodwill Ambassador for Rio Olympics.
