Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s love for yoga is well-known. So it came as no surprise when the PM said yes to Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s fitness challenge on Twitter. 

‘Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own Fitness Challenge video soon,’ the Prime Minister replied to Kohli. 

 

The ice bucket-like challenge began on May 22 when Union Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore posted a video of him doing push-ups in his office. Tagging Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Saina Nehwal, Rathore challenged them to join the campaign. 

 

Kohli is among the first of the trio to accept the challenge and post a video. Accepting Rathore's challenge, Kohli took to the micro-blogging site and posted a video of him doing Butt Plank on Wednesday. "I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni bhai for the same. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay," Kohli tweeted.

 

Besides them, Rathore's challenge was also accepted by Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju and Union Finance Minister Piyush Goyal, who also took to Twitter to share their fitness mantras.
