Delhi ready for star-studded torch
As much as 70 runners are taking part in the Olympic torch relay to be held in New Delhi
 INDIA , 17-April-2008  10:19:1 AM
As much as 70 runners are taking part in the Olympic torch relay to be held in New Delhi.

These include 47 sportspersons selected by the Indian Olympic Association. However, there are no cricketers after Sachin Tendulkar pulled out on Wednesday.

Some prominent icons of Indian sports such as Leander Paes, Anju Bobby George and past legends PT Usha and Milkha Singh are slated to run with the torch.

Among the actors, Saif Ali Khan, Aamir Khan and Sagarika Ghatge of Chak De India fame are taking part.

Actor Saif Ali Khan, earlier on Thursday, told NDTV's managing editor Barkha Dutt that while he does not agree with china's politics, he will run. When asked whether he would consider wearing a black band, Saif said that he may consider it.

There are 23 other runners, including 18 selected by the main sponsors for the Beijing Games and five Chinese torchbearers
