Hot Akshay to be torch bearer

Today the actor has become an international khiladi in the real sense. Akshay, who has been the brand ambassador from India for the Special Olympics World Winter Games for the past three years, is now also going to be the torch bearer for the 2010 Winter Olympic Games at Vancouver in Canada.

The martial arts expert, who was bestowed with the Katana a high Japanese honour in Karate, will be presented with the torch by Canadian Prime Minister Steven Harper in Mumbai on November 16. Akshay will be flying to Canada for the Games which will be held from January 30 to February 14, 2010. Reveals a source from the Indian Olympic Committee, "At a high power and exclusive lunch for 50 CEOs of prominent tourism companies, the Canadian PM will introduce Akshay as the sole torch bearer from India for the Olympics. The Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) will bring the Olympic Torch to the luncheon."

This will be the first time an exception is being made and the Olympic Torch will be presented to an actor and not a sportsperson. "A sitting head of the state invites someone from another nation to represent their country. This is a very huge honour for Akshay and he rightly deserves it," added the source. Indian skiers Tashi Lundup and Jamyang Namgial have qualified for the Winter Olympics.

He is one among the 15 international celebrities who have been invited for the Olympics torchbearer rally to Canada. Akshay Kumar is nominated as India's ambassador for the Olympic Games.

In a grand event to be held in Mumbai on November 16, Steven Baker, the Prime minister of Canada, will formally invite Akshay to take part in the rally of the winter Olympics, to be held from February 12 to 28 next year in Vancouver. Steven Baker is especially visiting India to announce it.

As reported in a tabloid, "He (Akshay) was selected because he is the only Indian actor who is a sixth degree black belt, and is quite popular with the sizeable Indian population in Canada," disclosed sources.

The Bollywood star, as expected, is quite thrilled with the news, and will run with the torch on December 17 in Ontario.

No doubt Akki has made a name for himself as the global face of Indian film industry.
