Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore started an exercise challenge, something similar to the ice bucket challenge earlier, and now Virat Kohli has jumped onto the bandwagon. In his recent tweet, the Indian cricket team's skipper posted a video of him doing the spider plank and tagged the Prime Minister Narendra Modi, his wife Anushka Sharma and Indian cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. While Anushka Sharma and MS Dhoni are yet to respond, Modi tweeted: “Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon. @imVkohli #HumFitTohIndiaFit”
The campaign has earned praise from tennis champion Sania Mirza, who tweeted, "When was the last time we saw a Minister do this??? Coolest leading by example.. congratulations on this #FitnessChallenge Sir.. here's to a brighter and healthier India .."
Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his response to Virat Kohli's fitness challenge. "Challenge accepted," he wrote in reply to the cricketer, promising to share his fitness video soon. Now the day PM Modi posts the video will be an "acche din".
