While most people today are busy looking for the safest spot where they can do the 'Kiki Challenge' without getting injured or arrested by cops, a few months back, our celebrities were busy taking a challenge that made sense and brought about a healthier change in the society.
From Virat Kohli, Anushka Sharma, Hrithik Roshan, Anand Mahindra, Deepika Padukone to even our PM Modi (although the social media brutally turned him into a meme later), this challenge was being accepted left right and centre by celebrities and prominent personalities.
We are talking about the famous Fitness Challenge that was introduced by Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports, Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore. Seriously, how often do you see a minister dropping to the ground and doing 19 push-ups in his office? But, Rathore did just that and soon, his social media followers, celebrities and politicians started following him, and a trend was born.
While the fitness challenge gradually died down, it is now going viral once again thanks to Salman Khan. Why? Because although he's late in following the trend, he FINALLY took the Fitness Challenge, which was thrown to him by Union Minister Kiren Rijiju, and shared his workout video with his fans today. We guess he was still recovering from the shocking response that 'Race 3' got which is why it took him so long to take the challenge.
Appreciating Rathore's campaign, he wrote, “Fabulous campaign by sports minister #RajyavardhanRathore on #HumFitTohIndiaFit. I accept #FitnessChallenge of #KirenRijiju. Here is my video…” 52-year-old Salman Khan, who is known for his ripped body and making women go in their knees with his shirtless avatar for decades (Remember 'Oh Oh Jaane Jaana'?), shared this video, where he is seen cycling and flaunting his biceps.

After Salman shared the video, Kiren Rijiju too replied on Twitter saying, “Great @BeingSalmanKhan bhai. You inspire millions to stay fit & healthy. Thanks for accepting my challenge.”August 11, 2018
On the work front, Salman Khan is currently in Malta shooting for his upcoming movie 'Bharat', the same movie that Priyanka Chopra recently made an exit from and Katrina Kaif was roped in.
