We all know that Bajrangi Bhaijaan actor Salman Khan is a socially-responsible public figure. Also, Salman leaves no stones unturned for doing his part in the society. A few days back, we saw Bhaijaan Salman riding a bicycle with Arunachal Pradesh's CM for inaugurating the Mechuka Adventure Festival.
Salman Khan and Katrina starrer Bharat is expected to hit the theaters on 5th June 2019
And you will be surprised to know that 52-year-old Bollywood actor will also be participating in the second phase of the inaugural function of Odisha Hockey's Men's World Cup at Barabati Stadium in Cuttack, Odisha.
Race 3 actor took it to his official Twitter account for informing about the same. In the caption, Sultan actor wrote: “Happy to join Hockey Men’s World Cup Celebrations 2018 in the millennium city of Cuttack on November 28, 2018. Come let’s cheer for the world’s best and make it memorable!!.”
Have a look at Salman's post below:

As per the tradition, a city fest will be organized from 1st to 16th of December. Besides Salman, musician Vishal and Shekhar, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Farhan Akhtar, Shaan, Shreya Ghoshal, Sona Mohapatra, Rituraj Mohanty, the Noorani Sisters and Krishna Beura, will also perform at the second phase of inaugural function of Hockey Men's World Cup 2018 in Cuttack, Odisha.
Although, Hockey is our national sport yet it hardly gets any attention from the media and spectators. It seems like Bhaijaan Salman is trying to make Hockey a spectator's sport, once again. This is not the first time when Salman has stepped forward for promoting an Indian sport. Earleir, we witnessed Bodyguard actor’s presence at the International Kabaddi tournament.
On a related note, Salman Khan is currently shooting for his upcoming movie, Bharat which also features Katrina Kaif in a pivotal character. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat is scheduled to release in 2019. Please share your views in the comment's section below. And stay tuned for more entertainment related updates.
