Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday accepted Indian cricket team skipper Virat Kohli's Fitness Challenge.
Taking to Twitter, Modi said,''Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own Fitness Challenge video soon".
Taking sports minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore's #HumFitTohIndiaFit campaign forward, Kohli on Wednesday gave a fitness challenge to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, star cricketer MS Dhoni, and his wife and actor Anushka Sharma.

In a self-made video posted on Twitter, Rathore on Wednesday urged Indians to shoot a video of their "fitness mantra" and share it. He then did 10 push-ups and also praised Prime Minister Modi by calling him his source of inspiration for staying fit.
Rathore then challenged Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan, and Saina Nehwal to join in and take the fitness challenge forward.
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.
