Hrithik Roshan is surely a fitness freak and is a great fitness icon of Bollywood. Although he is always lauded for his fitness regime, this time he got trolled for it. While accepting a fitness challenge by Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore for a social media campaign, he posted a video of him while riding a bicycle. However, he was criticised by fans for using mobile while cycling and also for not using helmet during cycling.
At present, a social media campaign ‘#HumFitTohIndiaFit’ for staying healthy is in trend on Twitter. So, Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore’s nominated actor Hrithik Roshan, cricketer Virat Kohli and badminton player Saina Nehwal to join the campaign.

In response for the fitness challenge, actor Hrithik Roshan opted for a bicycle ride. He posted a video on Twitter in which he was seen riding bicycle on the streets of Mumbai. He was passing through the busy streets on a bicycle. He captioned the video, “This initiative makes me so proud! Bravo. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #FitnessChallenge this is how I commute to my office every day. Sitting static in a car is such a waste. Walk, cycle, jog, feel the earth, feel India get FIT!” He further nominated his parents Rakesh and Pinkie Roshan, actors Tiger Shroff and Kunal Kapoor to take up the challenge.
But Hrithik soon got trolled by people who insisted that it is unsafe to ride bicycle without a helmet and use mobile while cycling. Some fans criticised him for violating traffic rules. Some social media users even tried to inform Mumbai Police about the Hrithik Roshan’s cycle ride. Have a look at some of the tweets.
Please wear a helmet while biking too and do not use mobile phone while cycling on busy streets of mumbai….

When the environment is worse around you, even if you try to stay fit your health will still deteriorate.#BanSterliteSaveThoothukudi

Are you kidding? There are no proper cycle lanes: motorists, buses, rickshaws & motor bikes having no road disciplines: potholes are common: no proper maintenance of roads: daily road accidents! Daily traffic problems! Just driving once on the roads: does not make any sense!
