Tendulkar had recently taken to Twitter to share a video, urging fans to play the sport they love. In the video, the former swashbuckler made an extension to the #HumFitTohIndiaFit challenge and has come up with an innovative idea and that is the #KitUpChallenge. 

Tendulkar also nominated Indian footballer Sandesh Jhingan, Hockey player Sardara Singh, cricketers Virat Kohli and Mithali Raj, along with badminton players Srikanth Kidambi and P. V. Sindhu to join in and motivate youth to engage in sports.

Tendulkar's caption wrote,'I'm kitting up to go play the sport I love. Share a video of you playing the sport you love. 

I nominate, @SandeshJhingan, @imsardarsingh8, @imVkohli, @M_Raj03, @srikidambi, @Pvsindhu1, @yesmrinmoy & @NavaniRajan. @PMOIndia #HumFitTohIndiaFit #KitUpChallenge #SportPLAYINGIndia'
