Mumbai: Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore took to Twitter a couple of days back to create awareness about health and fitness.
He shared a video that showed him doing exercise. The minister challenged actor Hrithik Roshan and sportspersons Virat Kohli and Saina Nehwal by nominating them.
Hrithik, who accepted the challenged posted a video that showed him cycling. But Tweeples weren't happy and they expressed disappointment about the fact that Hrithik was recording the video while riding his cycle. Moreover, he wasn't wearing a helmet.
People opined that being a celebrity, Hrithik should have been more responsible. Though people appreciated his idea, they didn't quite approve of the selfie video and the act of cycling on the main road without a safety head gear.

Please wear a helmet while biking too and do not use mobile phone while cycling on busy streets of mumbai....

Hey Hrithik! Your video will definitely inspire people across the globe to ride bicycle to work, to travel or merely to workout & stay fitter. But I've a humble request, please do wear helmet. Please use your power to inspire more sensibly. @TrekBikesIndia #bikelife #velolove

Hrithik, may not have expected this to come his way.
Nonetheless, it wouldn't be wrong to say that his idea is commendable.
The actor also nominated his parents and friends to take up the challenge.
"And on that note , I challenge my family @roshanpinkie @RakeshRoshan_N (since it all starts at home) and my friends @iTIGERSHROFF and @kapoorkkunal to inspire people to be the best version of themselves ! #KeepGoing #HumFitTohIndiaFit (sic)."
