The noble initiative “Hum Fit Toh India Fit” by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, sports and youth minister, has become a trend nowadays. Political leaders along with celebrities from the film industry as well as sports world are taking up the challenge for showcasing the world how they manage to remain fit despite their busy schedule.
The fitness challenge was started by Rajyavardhan himself who posted his push-ups video and threw a challenge on Virat Kohli, Hrithik Roshan and Saina Nehwal. While Kohli and Hrithik posted workout videos, Saina shared her video of weightlifting and further challenged Gautam Gambhir, PV Sindhu and Rana Daggaubati. Sindhu performed pull-ups and threw the challenge on Bollywood’s Mastani Deepika Padukone.
DeePee took up the challenge and shared a GIF in which she can be seen running backward and forward in a black tracksuit.
Deepika posted the video on the micro-blogging site Twitter with caption,
“I am extremely passionate about fitness…and my new obsession…RUNNING!🏃🏽♀️Thank You @pvsindhu1 !Challenge accepted! I now challenge @M_Raj03 @imranirampal @aditigolf kyunki #HumFitTohIndiaFit”
Here’s her tweet:

Her tweet went viral in no time but for all the wrong reasons. People trolled the actress for allegedly reposting an old video instead of taking up the challenge in a fair way. What’s more, Deepika challenged Mithali Raj but she has already posted her video regarding the campaign.

Running se jyada video pe focus hai😂😂

फ़िल्मी कलाकार हर बात पर नौटंकी क्यों करते हैं? यह कैसा fitness challenge है…ना करने का मन हो तो ना करें पर नौटकी सिर्फ परदे तक सीमित रखिये…

Do you also think that Deepika has cheated just to be a part of the campaign and didn’t take up the challenge in a fair manner? Let us know your views.
