Vouched as the country’s biggest health and fitness campaign, the 120-day long festival was launched in New Delhi. Patanjali has partnered with actor Suniel Shetty to launch the event
Ramdev was at the event to promote 120 days fitness festival 'Mission Fit India'. The 120 days festival is divided into four phases and is aimed to reach people across 43 cities in India. The festival coincides with the ongoing fitness challenge initiated by Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore
The objective of the campaign, which will be hosted on radio platforms across the country, is to encourage every Indian to be fit and to challenge the common misconception that getting healthy is complex, time-consuming and arduous. The four phases of the festival are 'Fit Basics', 'Suniel Ki Sena', 'Fitness Wars' and 'Finale'. Each phase addresses a key challenge that people face in their endeavour to get fit
Suniel Shetty took his fitness up a notch off late and now his name can be considered among the top fit actors in Bollywood. Shetty has been promoting 'Mission Fit India' for quite sometime now and has been frequently updating about fitness and well being on his social media
On film front, Suniel Shetty is committed towards 'Hera Phera 3' that will go on floors only by the end of this year
Baba Ramdev said, "Like every coin has two sides, so does your health - body and mind, and both need equal attention for your complete wellness. Yoga and Ayurveda take care of both and Mission Fit India will tell everyone how. The campaign is all about holistic wellness and that is the reason I could so easily relate to it."
Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty said, "Fitness is an area where there is yet to be a concerted effort in this country. The aim of this movement is to simplify fitness for every citizen of this country with correct guidance from a team of experts."
Earlier Prime Minister Narendra Modi urged everyone to include yoga in their life and focus on fitness, saying "if we are fit, India is fit". Talking about the 'Fit India' campaign, he mentioned a large number of people came forward to support the campaign and are sharing videos of their workouts on social media
Narendra Modi said, "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."
