Mumbai: Union Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore recently came up with an innovate initiative on Twitter where he narrated how Prime Minister Narendra Modi wanted the country to be fit.

In the video, he performs push-ups and nominating youth icons, Virat kohli, Saina Nehwal and Hrithik Roshan, asked his followers to post videos showing their fitness activities.

 

Hrtihik took up the challenge, and shot for a video where he is seen cycling through the crowded lanes of Mumbai.

In the video, he says, “Easiest way to beat traffic, get a cycle. Stay fit India” and wrote how he travels to office in the same way and that sitting in a car was 'such a waste' and people should walk, jog or cycle.

He also tagged his soon-to-be co-star Tiger Shroff, Kunal Kapoor and his parents Rakesh and Pinkie Roshan.

 

Though the superstar got largely positive messages for the video, some calling him an inspiration, others lauding his love for fitness and some posting their own videos in the comments, there was a section who expressed their disappointment and a few who trolled him.

They were particularly not pleased with the actor shooting a selfie video and also riding without a helmet. Not just that, a user called him 'aalsi' (lazy person) and some other lamented the poor condition of roads and environment and one of them felt it was easier for celebrities.

 

Check out some of the comments:

One of them tagged Mumbai Police and one of the users asked them to cut a ‘challan’ (fine).

They did reply this time as well.

Will Hrithik Roshan also face the same fate as Varun Dhawan and Kunal Kemmu recently? Seems unlikely, but only time will tell.
