After watching Salman’s fitness challenge video, the minister responded on Saturday, “Great @BeingSalmanKhan bhai. You inspire millions to stay fit & healthy. Thanks for accepting my challenge. #HumFitTohIndiaFit .”
Salman, known to be the pioneer of well built body in Bollywood, can be seen working out. The 52-year-old has the best biceps in business and can be seen doing rigorous shoulder workout in the video. He alternates it with cycling.

The actor is in Malta at present for the second schedule of upcoming film Bharat. The first schedule of the movie was wrapped up in Mumbai.
Salman took to his Instagram account to announce the beginning of the second schedule and wrote,”Starting the shooting schedule of #Bharat in Malta, lovely country .” This movie is Ali Abbas Zafar’s third collaboration with Salman after the 2016 film Sultan and the recent Tiger Zinda Hai.
After Priyanka Chopra walked out of the film, Katrina Kaif was roped in to play the lead opposite the Dabangg star. Bharat also stars Tabu and Disha Patani in pivotal roles. The film will feature Salman sporting five different looks spanning 60 years, wherein a crucial part will showcase the actor in his late 20s, looking much leaner and younger. Salman will be recreating his Karan-Arjun look which had created immense excitement among the audience.
