Bollywood star Akshay Kumar's stint as an torch bearer for the 2010 Winter Olympics was cut short by protests even as his fans lined the streets here to catch a glimpse of their idol.
Hockey is a sport that will be featured in a movie he'll be making here next year. Kumar said he's made seven or eight films in Toronto and Vancouver and he considers Canada his second home. He is also active in the community and has helped raise money for hospitals in both cities. "I just love Canada," Kumar said. "The people are so warm even though the weather is so cold."
