Rio Olympics 2016 : Rahman joins Olympic Goodwill  Ambassador
12 May 2016 Current Affairs: Oscar winning music composer A.R. Rahman on Thursday agreed to be the Goodwill Ambassador of the Indian Olympic contingent, joining cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar, ace shooter Abhinav Bindra and Bollywood star Salman Khan.

Tendulkar, Salman and Olympic gold medallist Bindra had earlier accepted the role offered by the Indian Olympic Association.

Now, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) has received an official written confirmation from AR Rahman. Bollywood superstar Salman Khan was the first to be appointed Goodwill Ambassador. It generated a lot of controversy as several sportspersons, including Milkha Singh, felt it did nothing to improve the performance of athletes preparing for the Olympics.
