"Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own Fitness Challenge video soon," tweeted Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday morning hours after Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli tagged him for a fitness challenge.

Kohli, on Wednesday, had accepted the challenge of Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and posted a video of him doing Butt Plank on Twitter.

"I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife Anushka Sharma , our PM Narendra Modi ji and MS Dhoni bhai for the same,"  Virat had tweeted.

The Fitness Challenge, part of 'Hum Fit Toh India Fit' campaign, was started by Rathore on May 22, when he posted a video of him doing push-ups.

In the same video, he threw challenge at Kohli, actor Hrithik Roshan, and badminton champ Saina Nehwal.

The Fit India movement was initiated by Prime Minister Modi in March, which has been gaining momentum since then.

He even talked about the movement in April's Mann Ki Baat and released a 3D-animated video of himself depicting the 'Trikonasana' posture.

Joining the league of people who accepted the fitness challenge, India TV chairman and editor-in-chief Rajat Sharma tweeted a video clip of him doing push-ups with superstar Salman Khan on his hugely famous show  - Aap Ki Adalat

"@BeingSalmanKhan had once challenged me to do push-ups on the floor of #AapKiAdalat show. Both of us did it. Fitness is a way of life, imbibe it to stay healthy," Rajat Sharma said in his tweet.
