Well, someone asked him why, and the reason is heart-warming:
“I don’t see myself fighting with Delhi, Pune or KKR. No doubt, it’s a wonderful way to promote sports, but I want to be there (pointing to the top). So, when it becomes Salman’s team versus Preity’s team or Shah Rukh’s team, it no longer remains a sporting thing, it gets into the area of gossip. Also, the `responsible press’ will take away focus from the match, and I don’t want to give anybody that kind of mileage. I want to do something for the overall development of sports.”
Awww… Now, does this justify Salman’s post as the Goodwill Ambassador?
We are so proud of you, Salman!
