After the recently done show with the defamed cyclist Lance Armstrong who was embroiled in the doping controversy, it is time for India to shine again on the international circuit.
It has been decades when a girl from India won any world beauty pageant, or any foreign director won Oscar for a poverty based film in India. For this reason, and many more, Oprah’s invitation to Suresh Kalmadi to appear on her show could not have come at a better time for India.
Speaking to FN, Oprah said, “I had no idea till a few days back as to who Mr.Kalmadi is. And I am absolutely not proud of that fact. I have been caught being very oblivious here. A man who did things of such scale ought to be known and I will make sure he gets his due and the whole world knows him now, and his art of strategic planning and the loop-holes involved.”
Mr. Kalmadi would be one of the very few Indians to appear on the show. Aishwarya Rai Bacchhan and beau have already been guests, and a few other little known Indians as well, but this might just be the biggest draw Oprah’s show can get in India.
When contacted, Mr. Kalmadi confirmed, “Yes, I have got the invitation from Ms. Anderson to appear on her show. It will be a good chance for me to clear my name of all the false controversies I have been linked with recently. I should clarify here that against the on-going rumors, I have not taken any money to appear on the show. That is completely baseless.”
When corrected that it is Ms. Winfrey rather than Ms. Anderson, Mr.Kalmadi said, “Doesn’t matter. Truth will finally prevail.”
