Hrithik Roshan accepts fitness challenge, cycles on Mumbai roads. Twitter claims traffic violations
Union minister for Sports and Youth Affairs Rajyavardhan Rathore started a fitness challenge on Twitter asking everyone to share pictures and videos of how they keep themselves fit. Late Wednesday, Rathore nominated Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, Saina Nehwal and cricketer Virat Kohli for the challenge, who then posted their workout videos.
“#HumFitTohIndiaFit Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. Here’s my video and I challenge @iHrithik, @imVkohli & @NSaina to join in,” Rathore tweeted.
Responding to the challenge, Hrithik revealed that he cycles on his way to office everyday. “This initiative makes me so proud ! Bravo @Ra_THORe #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge this is how I commute to my office everyday. sitting static in a car is such a waste. Walk, cycle, jog, feel the earth, feel India get FIT!” He also challenged his parents Rakesh and Pinki Roshan, along with Bollywood actor Tiger Shroff and Kunal Kapoor.
However, Twitter soon pointed out traffic violations and even tweeted to Mumbai Police. People on Twitter said that Hrithik was making a video while cycling and wasn’t wearing a helmet. A Twitter user @DuttRisky tweeted, “This is called violation of traffic rules. @MumbaiPolice what you are going to do now? @iHrithik you should have done it in open ground rather than on busy road.”
Mumbai Police tweeted to the user, saying, “Please share the location details for us to inform the concerned traffic division.”
Virat, on the other hand, posted a video of himself working out and tagged wife Anushka Sharma and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the challenge. “I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by @ra_THORe sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni Bhai for the same. 😀 #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay.” PM Modi accepted his challenge.
Saina also posted a viddeo of her workout and challenged Rana Daggubati, PV Sindu and Gautam Gambhir. “Thank u so much @Ra_THORe sir for challenging me 😁..#HumFitTohIndiaFit Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. Here’s my video and I challenge @RanaDaggubati @Pvsindhu1 and @GautamGambhir,” she tweeted.
The fitness challenge is now quite a rage online and people are also jumping onto the bandwagon. PT Usha, for example, tweeted, “Nobody challenged me but I’m here being active #HumFitTohIndiaFit Post pictures and videos of how you keep yourself fit and send a #FitnessChallenge to your friends on social media. I challenge @olympicdeva @PankajAdvani247 @BishanBedi @M_Raj03”
Rathore then replied to Usha and wrote, “Who can possibly dare to challenge you @PTUshaOfficial? You will always be an inspiration to thousands of Indian women for staying fit and chasing their dreams like a champion. Thank you for being a part of the #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge.”
Tiger Shroff, Farhan Akhtar, Babita Phogat and TV actor Soumya Tandon also joined the fitness campaign.
