Thiruvananthapuram: If Kerala is called the ‘Spice Garden Of India’, then this new brand ambassador will surely add to the Spice content of the place. Tennis glam girl Steffi Graf has reportedly been appointed the ambassador of Kerala tourism and will specifically work to take Ayurveda to the masses across the world. The decision was announced by state chief minister Oommen Chandy on Wednesday.
Steffi Graf is married to Tennis Star Andre Agassi and is also a 22-time Grand Slam winner will be seen taking the Indian Televisions more often and now to promote the ancient art of medicine around the world. Her massive global fan following is expected to give Ayurveda a massive boost – a possible reason why the German was roped in after the Kerala cabinet met to discuss the matter recently.
Previous reports had suggested that the state government was in talks with several high-profile celebrities – including Shah Rukh Khan – but finally chose Graph. The tennis star had already begun talking of Ayurveda and its benefits at many of her media outings.
