Big B Not To Be Ambassador For 2010 CWG
BJP’s suggestion to appoint Amitabh Bachchan as brand ambassador for 2010 CWG has been rejected by Commonwealth Games chief Suresh Kalmadi. Reports also claim that CWG committee is in search of a new brand ambassador.
BJP leader Vijay Kumar Malhotra has reportedly questioned Kalmadi’s decision and termed it to be an unfortunate development hinting the decision to be politically motivated. Malhotra in his letter to Indian Olympic Association senior vice-president Kalmadi had written that Amitabh’s star status would help in promoting the event.
Malhotra had said,"...the appointment of brand ambassador for Commonwealth Games 2010 is going to be very crucial because they will be looked upon as the best and brightest of the country... I suggest Shri Amitabh Bachchan should be appointed as the main brand ambassador of Commonwealth Games.”
