Terming it as a ‘great initiative’, global star Priyanka Chopra has applauded the viral fitness challenge HumFitTohIndiaFit.

The Quantico star said the drive, initiated by Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, has motivated her to get back to the gym.

“Thank you @Ra_THORe for a reminder that we all need to start living a healthier lifestyle. #HumFitTohIndiaFit is a great intitiave and it’s motivating me to get back to the gym! #AustinCagley @breebranks are you listening?” tweeted the 35-year-old.

On May 22, Rathore took to his Twitter handle to urge Indian citizens towards adopting a fitter lifestyle by inviting them to post pictures and videos of their fitness attempts. Along with his tweet, Rathore posted a video of himself wherein he could be seen speaking about the significance of fitness as stressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi before he went down to do ten push-ups.

Since then, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, Prime Minister Modi, Hrithik Roshan, Anushka Sharma, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju, and Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal have taken up the challenge and posted messages and videos supporting the cause.
