After Bollywood celebrities like Hrithik Roshan, Tiger Shroff, Anushka Sharma, now it is time for the South industry to accept the fitness challenge. #HumFitTohIndiaFit is a fitness challenge started by the Union Minister for Youth Affairs and Sports Rajyavardhan Rathore. With many celebrities extending their support to it, it was time for Naga Chaitanya, son of Nagarjuna to not just take up the challenge but also extend it to his wife Samantha Akkineni.
Naga Chaitanya accepted the #HumFitTohIndiaFit challenge and took to Twitter to share the video. The actor was seen exercising at his gym as a part of the said challenge and later, he also challenged his wife and co-actor Samantha Akkineni.
And not disappointing us, we saw yet another glimpse of the lovey-dovey couple taking up this challenge. While Naga was challenged by his brother Akhil Akkineni for this, whereas, like mentioned before, Samantha took it up after her lovely husband challenged her. The newly-weds however were quite sincere in their efforts as they managed to complete it efficiently. Here’s a glimpse of their challenges that were posted on their Twitter and Instagram handles:

For years every time my trainer said ‘pull up’ I would fake a head ache , a bad day at work ,a stomach ache, tooth ache, my non-existent puppy is terribly sick and I have to leave blah blah blah . So although this is far from a pull up I am glad that I finally have decided to try. We are never too old to change . Fitness for me has never been about looking good , it is about discipline , respect , confidence and strength . #humfittohindiafit I challenge @upasanakaminenikonidela @shilpareddy.official and @rakulpreet
