This was for the first time that any Bollywood superstar had been chosen as a goodwill ambassador for the national squad for something as as big as the Summer Olympics, but Dutt feels sports stars like PT Usha and Milkha have been ignored for the post, and they too have equally made India proud in the world arena.
खिलाड़ी हुँ इस लिए बनाया था में दारू नहीं पीता बीड़ी सिगरेट नहीं पीता अब तु बता अलिम्पिक के लिये सलमान क्यूँ है https://t.co/FLXSLuW1Ts— Yogeshwar Dutt (@DuttYogi) April 23, 2016
PT Usha,Milkha Singh jaise bade sports star hai jinhone kathin samay me desh ke liye mehnat ki. Khel ke kshetra me Es ambassador ne Kya kiya — Yogeshwar Dutt (@DuttYogi) April 23, 2016Venting his anger on Twiiter, Dutt Twitted:
Kahi bhi ja Kar apni movie ka promotion kare,Es desh me adhikar hai Lekin Olympic movie promotion ki jagah Nahi https://t.co/ed6vCqNMXT — Yogeshwar Dutt (@DuttYogi) April 23, 2016
He then concluded by saying that no one comes forward to help any athlete when they really need it and they all take advantage of the global event when required, whereas for any athlete, Olympics, is their dream.
