The Fast and Furious star was not behind in this! He soon uploaded his successful Bottle Cap Challenge video on his Instagram in slow-mo: 

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.”

To ace such difficult kicks and fitness acts, following are some of the tips to ace the spinning kick: 

  • A spinning kick and turning side kick are straight line attacks
  • Even though this mentions spinning, the kick is a straight line kick and requires great precision
  • Spot your target with one eye and then target your kick. It will help you kick better
  • Work on flexibility as the more the flexible the body is, the better the kick can be!
