Fitness is a crucial part of being healthy, regardless of whether a person is famous or a layman. Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, who is also an Olympic medalist, on Tuesday launched a fitness challenge #HumFitTohIndiaFit, urging people to shoot a video of their own "fitness mantra"' and fitness routine and share it.

Rathore tagged Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan, cricketer star Virat Kohli and badminton champion Saina Nehwal and since then there has been no looking back. The challenge spread like wildfire, and as Virat Kohli posted his own video regarding his fitness routing, he tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi, wife and actress Anushka Sharma and former India cricket captain MS Dhoni. PM Modi accepted the challenge, adding that he would post his video later on.
I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by @ra_THORe sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni Bhai for the same. ???? #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay pic.twitter.com/e9BAToE6bg— Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) May 23, 2018

Apart from famous celebrities, the challenge was embraced by the public as well. The challenge embraces the versatilitity of fitness, with there being numerous ways for a person to be fit, whether it's by cycling, streching, push-ups, yoga or more.
PM Modi's quick acceptance of the challenge from Virat Kohli was slammed by Tejashwi Yadav who in turn challenged PM Modi to "provide jobs to young, relief to farmers, promise of no violence against dalits and minorities."
While we have nothing against accepting fitness challenge from @imVkohli . I urge you to accept the challenge to provide jobs to young, relief to farmers, promise of no violence against dalits & minorities. Would you accept my challenge @narendramodi Sir?— Tejashwi Yadav (@yadavtejashwi) May 24, 2018
