In his capacity as the Minister for Sports and Youth Affairs (he is also in charge of Information and Broadcasting), Rajyavardhan Rathore posted a video on twitter of himself casually doing push-ups in his office – dressed formally, at that. The idea was to challenge everyone to post their own fitness routines as well, with the (laudable) idea that it might become a trend.
Some people were quick to rise to the challenge, as the videos below show. From planks to yoga, it was all on display.
Also joining in was badminton star Saina Nehwal – who, perhaps cheekily, passed on the challenge to fellow sportspersons PV Sindhu and Gautam Gambhir, as well as film-star Rana Dugubatti.
And here are Rathore’s own post and video.
