Ace Indian shuttler PV Sindhu, who was also nominated by Tendulkar, had earlier participated in the challenge. “I’d like to thank @sachin_rt sir for nominating me for the Fitness kit-up Challenge, I’m kitting up to play the sport I love. I nominate @MangteC @Suriya_offl @WrestlerSushil to kit up and share videos of the same,” she had written on Twitter.

Tendulkar on Thursday came up with a new ‘Kit Up Challenge’, urging people to go out, play and share a video of the same on social media. Calling it an extension of the Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s ‘Hum Fit Toh India Fit’ challenge, the former Indian cricketer highlighted the importance of playing a sport to stay fit and healthy in a video that he shared on his Twitter, Facebook and Instagram accounts.
