Ever since Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore launched a #FitnessChallenge to make India fitter and better, Indians have been gripped in the fever. From Bollywood stars like Hrithik Roshan, Anushka Sharma to sports star like Virat Kohli, the fitness challenge was even accepted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Now joining the bandwagon is Deepika Padukone.
Posting a video on Twitter, for the challenge, Padukone shared a boomerang video of her running in a park. However, Tweeple were not happy with this. After being nominated by ace shuttler and Olympian PV Sindhu, the Padmaavat actor posted an old video and it wasn’t overlooked by people on Twitterverse.
The video shared by the Bollywood beauty was actually shot in New York and posted on her Instagram account while the star was there to attend the coveted Met Gala.

Many fans were disappointed that Piku actor shared an old video and said it was “not done”, others trolled her for not taking the challenge seriously. A few urged her to record an actual fitness video worthy of the challenge and share it online.
Here’s what Tweeple had to say:
Do u call it running?

When it comes to Twitterati, there’s hardly anything that skips their attention, and certainly, they don’t forget something dating back even a few years. Be it Amitabh Bachchan questioning about ‘westernised’ birthday celebrations or Akshay Kumar deleting his old tweet on fuel price hike — of late, we saw a number of examples when Tweeple reminded stars of their old tweets and photos.
