Salman Khan promises to give Rs 1 lakh to every Indian Olympic athlete

Bollywood superstar Salman Khan has once again proved that he has a golden heart. Salman announced via social media that he will be presenting the Indian Olympic athletes with cheques of Rs 1,01,000, as a ‘gesture of appreciation’ for their efforts at the games.

Salman, also India’s goodwill ambassador for the Rio Olympics, made the announcement on Twitter, where he even said that the government is very supportive of sports and that we should also do our part to encourage sports in the nation.

On the other hand, Yash Raj Films, which recently released the blockbuster ‘Sultan’, starring Salman Khan and Anushka Sharma, had announced last week that they would give Rs 10 lakh cash award to the Indian athletes who win gold for the country at Rio Olympic games.

However, Indians are hoping their 118 athletes to still win a medal at the Rio Olympic.
