Veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher called Prime Minister Narendra Modi a "rockstar" after the latter posted his fitness video on social media.
Modi on Wednesday took to Twitter to share his workout video and wrote: "Here are moments from my morning exercises. Apart from Yoga, I walk on a track inspired by the Panchtatvas or five elements of nature - Prithvi (earth), Jal (water), Agni (fire), Vayu (air), Aakash (sky). This is extremely refreshing and rejuvenating. I also practice breathing exercises. Hum fit toh India fit."

Impressed by it, Anupam wrote: "Prime Minister Narendra Modi! You are a rockstar. What an amazingly inspirational morning exercise video. Thank you for sharing it. Jai Ho."
Modi shared a fitness video after he was nominated in an online fitness challenge by Indian Cricket Captain Virat Kohli.
The Prime Minister nominated Karnataka Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy, Table Tennis player Manika Batra and the entire fraternity of the Indian Police Service Officers (IPS) to take on the challenge and post their fitness videos.
On the other hand, Bollywood actor Anupam Kher will be stepping into the shoes of ex-Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for his upcoming movie ‘The Accidental Prime Minister’. The actor, who has worked in more than 500 movies, has been preparing for the role for many days now and his various looks as the ex-Prime Minister can leave anyone in confusion wondering he is real Manmohan Singh or not.
This clip was sent to me by various people. So someone captured it & posted it while I was rehearsing. It is from our shoot of #TheAccidentalPrimeMinister in UK. So instead of you finding it on various platforms I am happy to share it with you all myself.🙏 #PowerOfSocialMedia pic.twitter.com/xMCfoCnAmS— Anupam Kher (@AnupamPKher) April 11, 2018
Other than the movie, Anupam Kher is also excited for the upcoming IIFA awards which will take place in Bangkok as the actor will be presented with the Outstanding Achievement Award for his contribution to the Hindi cinema at the ceremony.
