Time to get sporty!

After having paired together in many films, Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar are now teaming up for something entirely different. The buzz is that the two stars are going to endorse and promote the 34th National Games 2009, which will be held from November 21 to December 5 in Jharkhand.

According to sources, Akshay and Katrina will be promoting the games throughout India.

They will reportedly hold press conferences in New Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata including other Indian cities to promote the games and encourage people to go and watch them. The idea is to promote the athletic sports that havenít got much endorsement from celebrities yet.

Akki and Katrina will also be part of the publicity campaign of the gamesí posters and billboards.

The two stars are reportedly being paid Rs 4 crores each for endorsing the games but there has not been any official confirmation of the amount by Akki or Kat.

Akshay has always been forthcoming in promoting various sports. He has given financial support to wrestling and done his bit to encourage it among Indian youth. Heís also been the face of the IPL team Delhi Daredevils while Katrina has promoted Bangalore Royal Challengers.
