On country's Olympics run so far, Khan said, "There is a huge scope of improvement. I don't think we don't have the capability to do well. Perhaps what we don't know how to harness the capability of the individual." (Photo: Reuters)
"We have diamonds but we need to polish them. We need adequate research and development in the sport and that alone can create a champion," the actor said. (Photo: AP)
On Bollywood personalities and corporates showing interest in the Indian Premier League, Khan said, "I rather be the fan of the team than owning one. I don't want to own the team. I don't have the ability and can't manage to do that with acting at the same time." (Photo: AP)
