Bollywood star Salman Khan has been approached by Indian Railways to be their brand ambassador, says a media report.
The report quoted a source close to the actor, "The Indian Railways is used as a mode of transport by a very large number of population. And, as a star, Salman has a huge appeal among the masses. So it's a perfect brand fit."
The source said: "His movies like Tere Naam, Wanted, Dabangg ... all have important scenes in trains or railway platforms." Even in his forthcoming Eid release, Bodyguard, the actor will be seen bashing up villains against the backdrop of the railway station.
Salman's business manager declined to comment. "It's too premature to talk anything about it right now," was all she was willing to say.
So far, Aamir Khan has been the brand ambassador of Indian tourism. Shah Rukh Khan endorses the Mumbai police website. Amitabh Bachchan is the brand ambassador of Gujarat. And now, Salman will join this group.
