On Thursday, the Kalank actor Kunal Kemmu Instagrammed a video of his own version of the Bottle Cap Challenge, which begins with him flexing his muscles and folding his sleeves as prep session to take the challenge head on but ends with a hilarious twist.
For those who don't know, the Bottle Cap Challenge requires you to unscrew a bottle lid simply with a flying kick while keeping the bottle intact in its place. Now, after all that flexing, Kunal Kemmu made the best use of his "opposable thumbs", opened the bottle and took a nice long sip of water. Yep, he did it!
"Stay hydrated and thank god for opposable thumbs," he tweeted. BRB. We are dying laughing. On Instagram, those who became a fan of Kunal Kemmu's modified version of the challenge include Rohit Shetty, Angad Bedi, Mandana Karimi and others.
Take a look at it here:
The Bottle Cap Challenge was introduced in Bollywood by none other than Akshay Kumar, who drew inspiration from his "action guru" Jason Statham. "I couldn't resist. Inspired by my action idol Jason Statham," he captioned his post. On his feed, Akshay has also been re-sharing his favourite Bottle Cap Challenge videos as posted by fans.

Within hours, Akshay Kumar's Housefull 4 co-star Riteish Deshmukh attempted to claim that it's actually him in the Akshay Kumar video. Nice try Riteish but we know the truth here. "I couldn't resist either! That's my Bottle Cap Challenge with an Akshay Kumar mask... beware he may claim it's him.... as a good friend I will allow him that much! My next challenge video is with a Tiger Shroff mask." Smooth.

Tiger Shroff, also a fitness enthusiast like Akshay Kumar, accepted the challenge head on and nailed it - he even blindfolded himself while doing it as inspired by martial arts expert and actor Donnie Yen. Impressed. "Well, since everybody's showing off... Looking good Riteish sir," Instagrammed Tiger.

Hollywood actor Ryan Reynolds took the challenge and ended up kicking the bottle instead of its cap. The actor can be seen running away for cover after his miserable attempt.
