There have been tons of challenges floating on the internet since last few years. While some challenges are designed to spread awareness, some are useless. Swachh Bharat Challenge, Ice Bucket Challenge are the challenge that brought this internet challenge culture to India. Last year, the bizarre ‘Blue Whale challenge’ broke the internet for all the wrong reasons.
Right now, we have a brand new Fitness challenge going on in India. Fitness challenge got popular when cricketer Virat Kohli participated and challenged Prime Minister Narendra Modi for fitness challenge last month, along with Anushka Sharma and M.S.Dhoni.
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

PM Modi accepted Virat’s fitness challenge and tweeted,

Since then, Twitter was anticipating PM Modi’s fitness challenge video. A user Tweeted just yesterday,
If I am not wrong, PM Modi had accepted Virat's #FitnessChallenge & said that he will soon upload his own fitness video.
But, where is the video? He did not even keep this promise? 🤔#Feku
