"When I say 'Fit India', I believe that the more we play, the more we will inspire the country to come out and play.

"For me, it is heartwarming that the captain of the Indian cricket team Virat Kohli has included me in his challenge... and I have accepted his challenge. I believe this is gainful and this kind of a challenge will inspire us to be fit along with others as well," he added.
