While football star Baichung Bhutia has refused to carry the torch in the run-up to the Beijing Olympics, two movie stars have decided to go ahead with the opportunity to carry the flame in New Delhi on April 17.

Unlike the sportsman who showed his support for the Tibetans and their ongoing turmoil in Tibet by refusing to carry the torch, Aamir Khan and Saif Ali Khan Aamir are all set for the event.

Defending his decision, Aamir, in his blog, said that though he sympathised with Tibetans' plight, the Olympics are not a Chinese event.

Saif too agreed with Aamir saying, 'When the Indian government is not opposing the event, who am I to oppose it?'

Now, we're not saying if the actors are right or wrong. But we would like to know from you, dear reader, what you feel about their support for the Beijing Olympics games. Tell us!
