The initiative, called the Hum Fit Toh India Fit challenge, was started by the sports minister, who posted a short video of himself doing push-ups few days ago. Rathore began a fitness challenge on Twitter, requesting people to share pictures and videos of their favourite workout. Rathore nominated Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, Saina Nehwal and cricketer Virat Kohli for the challenge, who then posted their workout videos. Virat had challenged wife Anushka, MS Dhoni and Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Deepika shared a video and wrote on Instagram, “I am extremely passionate about fitness...and my new obsession...running!Thank You @pvsindhu1 ! I challenge @mithaliraj @ranirampal4 @aditigolf #HumFitTohIndiaFit”
Rathore called on actor Hrithik Roshan, Indian cricket skipper Virat Kohli and badminton champion Saina Nehwal to join the campaign, who shared their fitness mantras and tagged their friends for the challenge.
Hrithik Roshan, Anushka Sharma, Akhil Akkineni, Naga Chaitanya, PT Usha, PV Sindhu, Tiger Shroff, Farhan Akhtar, Babita Phogat and TV actor Soumya Tandon also joined the fitness campaign.
