The stars met the men and women who will represent our nation this year...
Salman Khan, who is riding high on the success of Sultan, is on a short break before he starts shooting for his next - Tubelight. And looks like he is completing all his other work commitments, before he starts with his next. Yesterday, he launched Sania Mirza's autobiography in Mumbai and today again, he shared the stage with the champ tennis player and music maestro AR Rahman as they bid farewell to the Rio bound athletes.
Yes, the biggest sporting event of the world - the Olympic Games is about to start and India have sent a huge contingent this year as well. Salman and AR Rahman, who were a part of the Indian Olympic contingent ambassadors, met with the Indian athletes at an event organized by the Indian Olympic Association (IOA) in New Delhi today.
It was a small meet and greet event to to give a perfect send-off to all the Indian athletes who will be participating in the Rio Olympics 2016. We saw the actor formally dress in a black suit and black pant paired with a white t-shirt as he shared the stage with the top IOA officials and athletes. Tennis star Sania Mirza, gymnast Dipa Karmakar and others joined Salman to wish everyone good luck before the games begin. The actor even motivated the contingent by asking them to go to the Games and give their best shot. AR Rahman even added that sports and music are the two things that unite the nation. Sania Mirza and the IOA officials had a few words of encouragement too!
We now hope that Salman, AR Rahman and Sania's words inspire the athletes to perform well. We wish them luck too! Check out all the pictures from the event in the gallery above!
