He is 51 but still looks half his age. Milind Soman is constantly giving us major fitness goals and we cannot deny the fact that he is one of the fittest men that India has seen! Even people in their 20’s find it difficult to get out of their bed and exercise, but this man has left us tongue-tied by completing the vigorous ‘Ironman’ and ‘Ultraman’ marathons.
In an interview with Bombay Times, Milind talks about his introvert self, his immense love for running and his plans for marriage!
Milind Soman feels that selfies are “silly” and so he has this very interesting ‘selfie challenge’.
“I am camera shy and hate being photographed. That’s one of the reasons why I started the selfie challenge. Men must complete 20 push-ups and women 10 if they want a selfie with me. This generation is obsessed with selfies.
I want people to at least start thinking about their fitness. If you are doing something as mundane and silly as clicking selfies, then you might as well also do something that adds value to your life. Do push-ups!”
He talked about how running makes him feel liberated and how he doesn’t “understand the concept of age and numbers”.
“I feel like God when I am running and I am not embarrassed to say that. I feel more than human. It opens your mind.”
And now, Milind Soman also confessed that he wouldn’t mind doing another nude photo shoot.
“Nobody ever told me that I was good-looking until I started modelling. My parents were proud of my sporting career, but they never spoke about my looks. I have lived with these tags (sexiest man, etc) for over 30 years. Now, I feel people just say it because they have to (laughs!).
Some of you may also remember that I had done a nude photoshoot for an ad, which turned controversial. It was a beautiful picture and there was no discomfort at all. Even my mother liked it. Will I do nude photoshoots even today? Why not?”
Milind also talked about his marriage plans and how his friends advise him to freeze his sperm!
His advise on consuming alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs is…
“I have tried everything — smoking, alcohol, and drugs, but I knew where to stop. Now, I can’t even stand passive smoking.”
This man is spreading awareness about fitness and India needs to listen to him for a healthier next generation!
