Salman Khan is a brand ambassador of a charity cricket match in IIFA

Bollywood actor, Salman Khan, will be the brand ambassador of a charity match that will be played between Indian celebrities and Sri Lankan cricketers. This match will be organized by the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA). The three day event will kick off from 3-5 June in Colombo and the charity match will take place during the event.

The aim of this cricket match is to rehabilitate former Tamil Tiger child soldiers who once fought in the rank of LTTE. It will be held in combination with the Sri Lankan cricket board, NGO Habitat for Humanity and UNICEF.

Salman Khan said, “We will help to invest in making homes in Jaffna. I love you guys and I will help you soon”.

Salman Khan supported IIFA’s proposal that aim to help Sri Lankan people who have suffered because of long war. However, it ended with a military victory for Colombo in May last year.

It will also help to make good relationship between India and Sri Lanka.
