Our Bollywood stars were not behind in this social media mania when the Khiladi of Bollywood, Akshay Kumar posted his slow-mo video of uncapping the bottle. Even at the age of 51, Akshay Kumar’s fitness levels are on point. He wrote, “Taking inspiration from my idol Jason Statham, I will repost/retweet the Best I see, come on Guys and Girls get your Bottle out and your Legs in the Air, Let’s Do This.”
Following the footsteps of Khiladi was the Gully Boy star and the newbie on the block, Siddhant Chaturvedi. Raking in reviews for his acting in Gully Boy and his chocolate boy looks, he surely did a spending job with this challenge. He even wrote, “Next challenge - Let’s kick out the plastic bottles, not just their caps.”
As a joke, Riteish Deshmukh even pulled a gimmick by posting Akshay’s slow-mo video with a quirky post:
