Forget Bollywood stars and sportspersons taking up Union minister (youth affairs & sports) Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s fitness challenge. Joining the bandwagon is Kajol and Ajay Devgn’s young son, Yug.

Ajay posted a video on social media of his 7-year-old doing a series of gym exercises. The young lad does a series of push-ups, a free style cartwheel and other exercises. The under-half minute video ends with a disclaimer that these exercises should be done only under the guidance of trained professionals.

Yug is probably among the youngest to take up the sports minister’s challenge. In doing so, Yug has pushed the benchmark really high.

Ever since Rathore posted a video on his Twitter account on May 22, asking Indians to share their fitness mantra (in hope to inculcate a fitness culture in India), scores of celebrities have been accepting the challenge and have been posting videos of their exercise routines.

These include actors -- Hrithik Roshan, Saiyami Kher, Gul Panag, Naga Chaitanya, Akhil Akkineni, Varun Dhawan, Anushka Sharma, south Indian actor Lakshmi Manchu, Shilpa Shetty Kundra, Rakul Preet; TV actor Hiten Tejwani; directors -- Madhur Bhandarkar, Remo D’souza, Karan Johar; singer Adnan Sami and others.

Sportspersons also joined in. Those who accepted the challenge include PV Sindhu, Saina Nehwal, Yogeshwar Dutt, Sania Mirza (who is pregnant and due in October), Sushil Kumar, Parupalli Kashyap and Virat Kohli among others.
