"Get up for every errand yourself, gym each day, push away that excess morsel of temptation, drive or cycle yourself, see the sun more often", Bachchan wrote, describing his fitness routine. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma, our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni Bhai for the same. "I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by @ra_THORe sir. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay." PM Modi accepted his challenge.

Hrithik tweeted saying, "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!"
"Prime Minister Narendra Modi this morning tweeted his response to Virat Kohli's fitness challenge".
