From Narendra Modi to Virat Kohli, it seems the nation is smitten by fitness. #HumFitTohIndiaFit has become a raging hasthtag, which is trending and it is good that a country which never laid a lot of importance on fitness is finally accepting it. But it seems times are changing and that is certainly pleasant. India’s celebrated football captain Sunil Chettri is the latest to join the bandwagon. Well, what surprises us as fans is the fact that surprisingly she challenged an actress to do the challenge. And guess who that is, it is Alia Bhatt! We can just hope that fans do not take it otherwise and start speculating.

From ‘Student of the Year’ to ‘Raazi’, Alia Bhatt has come a long way in Bollywood and is among the best actresses in the country. So, here is how it started, on May 21, shooter-turned-politician Rathore kick-started a fitness awareness campaign asking people to post pictures and videos on social media depicting how they keep themselves fit. Since that has gone viral and celebrities are joining this campaign by the minute it seems. It seems to have smitten people from all walks of life.

Here is the video Sunil Chetri posted:

Here are some other big names who participated in the challenge.

It is good things like fitness are finally getting it’s worth noticed. Better late than never is all one can say!
