This thing happened again, Salman Khan made two slip ups at an event in Mumbai when he mixed up history-making Olympic qualifier Dipa Karmakar‘s name and introduced Nawazuddin Siddqui as Nawazuddin ‘Shah.’
One of the media person tried to correct him and at the next moment he said, “Yes Deepti.”
It is well known that Dipa Karmakar has created a history by becoming the first Indian to qualify for the individual vault for Rio Olympic 2016, and this is her first debut to the greatest sports event.
When hue and cry started Salman Khan defencing himself said, “The media should have done the same when Sachin and Rahman were roped in. Why didn’t that happen? Why didn’t the media give them the same coverage that they gave me? In their case too, while one isn’t a sportsperson, the other has only played one sport.”
