Mumbai: Scriptwriter Salim Khan has once again defended son Salman Khan's appointment as the goodwill ambassador of the Indian Olympic contingent, saying he cannot be called unfair as he did not support the superstar in other controversies.

"Winding up. Salman has been in controversy for the last 25 years regularly. Not a single time I supported him. I was known as a fair person.

"Now first time I support him on my belief that what he is doing is right. Instead and alcohol or tobacco he is promoting sports,"

Salim wrote on Twitter today.

Wrestler Yogeshwar Dutt and sprint legend Milkha Singh had raised eyebrows over IOA's decision to go with the 50-year-old Bollywood superstar over a sportsperson.

Salim's earlier tweets, where he took potshot at Milkha Singh claiming Bollywood "resurrected" the sports personality from "fading away", were mocked by social media users. "And I am called unfair, arrogant and asked to apologise. 'Oh lord forgive them for they know not what they do' -
Jesus," Salim wrote.
