The fitness challenge #HumFitTohIndiaFit started by Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore seems to be gaining steam. Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday accepted Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli's fitness challenge. Responding to the cricketer's tweet, the PM said: "Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon @imVkohli #HumFitTohIndiaFit."
Virat had challenged the PM, his wife Anushka Sharma and cricketer MS Dhoni to share their fitness videos. The chain was started by Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore who shared his video doing pushups and challenged Virat Kohli, actor Hrithik Roshan, and shuttler Saina Nehwal to do so too.

Apart from Virat, Saina also posted a video that showed her lifting weights.
