Salman Khan seeks bank details of Rio athletes to send prize money

Almost a month ago we had reported that Salman Khan wants to give away Rs.1,01,000 as cash prize to all the Olympic participants. Now keeping up his promise, the superstar has approached the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) for the details of the contestants and hence has written a letter to them for the same.Salman Khan has decided to transfer the said amount to the bank accounts of the participants directly and hence has asked the IOA to give him information about the same.

 Interestingly, Salman was also the brand ambassador for Rio Olympics 2016 from the Indian contingent. However he soon got trapped into a controversy owing to the ‘rape’ comment that invited the wrath of several women organizations. Terming it as ‘insensitive’, the superstar received flak from varied sections by the society and followed by the outrage, the IOA authorities threatened Salman Khan of being removed as the ambassador if he doesn’t apologize publically.
