When asked if he wanted Randeep Hooda or Shah Rukh Khan to be appointed instead, Dutt responded by saying, "You have the right to promote your movie anywhere in this country, but the Olympics are no place for movie promotions."


He even called out Khan's credentials.

"There are big sports stars like P.T. Usha and Milkha Singh who worked hard for the country in tough times. What has this ambassador done in the field of sports," Dutt tweeted.
