Seems like Katrina Kaif feels Salman Khan and controversy go hand-in-hand.
When the 32-year-old actress, during the wrap-up party of Baar baar Dekho on Monday night, was asked about her former boyfriend’s recent Olympic controversy, she said, “What is new with Salman Khan being entangled in a controversy.”
Controversy stirred up when the 50-year-old actor was recently appointed as the Goodwill ambassador of the Indian contingent for the 2016 Summer Olympic to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Several members of the Indian sports fraternity have questioned the selection of the Dabangg actor as brand ambassador.
2012 London Olympics bronze medalist Yogeshwar Dutt made his displeasure known through a series of tweets barely an hour after the decision was announced. Veteran athlete Milkha Singh also said that a sports person should have been appointed as the brand ambassador.
Baar Baar Dekho, which stars Sidharth Malhotra opposite Katrina, is directed by debutant director Nitya Mehra and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani, Farhan Akhtar and Karan Johar. The film is scheduled for a worldwide release on September 9.

According to the Ek Villain actor’s earlier statement, this movie revolves around a person’s life from the age of 18 to 60. “It’s not a time travel or science fiction, it’s a fictitious story,” he said. Sidharth even added that he had done prosthetics for a 60-year-old character in the film which is a love story with a twist.
