MUMBAI: Actor Akshay Kumar has been signed as Canadian Tourism Commission’s (CTC) ambassador for India for a second year.
Kumar addressed the media and answered questions at a press conference in Delhi followed by a lunch banquet, hosted by the CTC for members of the Indian travel trade in recognition of India as a priority international market for out bound travel to Canada.
Kumar will leverage his celebrity status in India to promote Canada as a premier four-season destination in his continued role. As part of the role, he will make several promotional appearances in both India and Canada as well as familiarisation trips across Canada to be reported and extensively documented by the media.
Kumar said he is honored and privileged to represent the CTC as their Ambassador for India for a second year. "I am truly proud to encourage and promote Canadian tourism in India, which is like a second home for me," he said.
