A couple of days ago, India’s Minister of Youth Affair and Sports, Rajyavardhan Rathore took to Twitter to throw out a fitness challenge to all Indians. the ex-army man and Olympic silver medalist did consecutive push-ups in his work clothes at his office and urged the countrymen to get fitter. In his bid to motivate the younger generation, he asked everyone to upload their fitness videos on Twitter as a part of the #HumFitTohindiaFit Campaign.
Rathore further tagged Indian skipper Virat Kohli, Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan and Badminton great Saina Nehwal to take up the challenge.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli accepted the challenge and came up with a video of his own. He went down to his plank position and showed his ‘favorite core workout’. Interestingly, in his nominations, he asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take part.

Being an absolute sport, Narendra Modi Ji had an answer for Virat Kohli. Modi Ji, who is an active personality on social platforms, gladly accepted Virat’s challenge and promised him that he will be back with the video soon!
