#ViratKohli on #SalmanKhan issue : It doesn’t matter whether I am for or against it#Bengaluru / #Delhi : India’s star batsman Virat Kohli says that his opinion on whether film star Salman Khan should be the goodwill ambassador for the Indian contingent for the coming Rio Olympics or not has no significance.
“It doesn’t matter whether I am for or against it. It is for the people (IOA) who made the decision to comment. I cannot say anything on this issue for obvious reasons,” Kohli said on the sidelines of a promotional event here on Friday.

Virat Kohli, who is in the City to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL match on Saturday, said the decision to name Salman Khan for the assignment does give some masala for the news media.

“I repeat that I cannot say whether a sports personality or someone else should have been there instead of Salman Khan ,” he said when asked someone like Cricket Legend  Sachin Tendulkar or any other sporting legend would have been more appropriate. Questioned which has been a bigger challenge for him – being on the cricket field or handling these business assignments, Virat Kohli said he is nervous with these kind of promotional events where he is directly connected to the fans.

“I am grateful for all the millions of fans who love me so much. Honestly, it is only after another 10 years that I can think of being a serious entrepreneur. Right now, my focus is on cricket and nothing else,” Kohli commented.

“Well, once I am on the field, I stay focussed on the action out there and don’t think of anything else,” he added.

#ViratKohli also made a style statement saying that he would advise his fans or for that matter anyone to wear clothes in which they feel comfortable, confident. “I personally would love to keep things pretty simple, be practical and try to pick something different too,” he concluded.
