A.R. Rahman India’s Fourth Goodwill Ambassador For Rio Olympics


Mumbai: A.R. Rahman will join the likes of Salman Khan, Sachin Tendulkar and Abhinav Bindra as India’s Goodwill Ambassador for the Rio Olympics.

Music composer AR Rahman accepted the Indian Olympic Association’s offer to become the Goodwill Ambassador for the Rio Olympics.

There was a storm when the IOA named Salman Khan as a Goodwill Ambassador late last month. The association since went on a damage-control mode and appointed Beijing gold medalist and ace shooter Abhinav Bindra and legendary batsman Sachin Tendulkar .

Rahman is well-respected across the country and bagged an Oscar for his music in ‘Slumdog Millionaire.’
