When Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is believed by his ardent supporters to have a 56-inch chest (never mind that Arnold’s career best was 54 inches), accepted Virat Kohli’s #FitnessChallenge on Twitter, he probably was expecting that this brawny expression was only going to earn him praise and accolades.
