The “Khiladi” taking on the Olympic torch!
The one and only Khiladi, Akshay Kumar was announced as the official torch bearer representing India for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic games. Prime Minister Harper officially declared this during his very busy visit to India today. Akshay Kumar will be relaying the torch in Toronto on December 17th and is the only actor invited to perform this task out of the 14 internationally recognized celebrities.
Indian entertainment seems to have been painted with red, white and maple leaves during the Canadian Prime Minister’s visit to India. Apart from making the torch bearer announcement, Stephen Harper also appeared on Dance Premier League, reality show based in Mumbai. There are a few connections to Canada as the host of DPL, Shiamak Davar is an Indo-Canadian himself who resides in Vancouver, as well a few of the competitors are Canadian themselves.
Here are a few shots that have been captured of Stephen Harper’s visit.
