In another video, posted an hour after, Tendulkar was seen speaking with Varun about the importance of playing a regular sport and staying fit.

Both of them even lauded PM Narendra Modi for launching the Fit India movement.
Tendulkar captioned the second video, “Our Hon. PM Shri @narendramodi’s #FitIndiaMovement launched today resonates with my dream of transforming into a #SportPlayingNation.
