Taking sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s #HumFitTohIndiaFit campaign forward, Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday gave a fitness challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, star cricketer MS Dhoni, and his wife and actor Anushka Sharma.
Rathore on Wednesday urged Indians to shoot a video of their “fitness mantra” and share it. He then did 10 push-ups and also praised Prime Minister Modi by calling him his source of inspiration for staying fit.
Rathore then challenged Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan, and Saina Nehwal to join in and take the fitness challenge forward.
Accepting Rathore’s challenge, Kohli took to the micro-blogging site and posted a video of him doing Butt Plank.
“I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni bhai for the same. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay,” Virat tweeted.

Besides them, Rathore’s challenge was also accepted by Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju and Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, who also took to Twitter to share their fitness mantras.
Other top Indian athletes and stars promptly responded to the minister with a video and message of their own.
Saina Nehwal thanked Rathore for the challenge and posted a video of her lifting a barbell, passing on the challenge to fellow shuttler PV Sindhu, film star Rana Daggubati and cricketer Gautam Gambhir.
