For his 55th birthday, the epitome of fitness Milind Soman had shared a photo of himself running in his birthday suit in Goa. However, his not-so-modest picture on social media raised a few questions since Poonam Pandey was arrested by the Goa Police for shooting an ‘obscene video’ in the city.

Giving is not only about money, but i guess money is good sometimes 😋 As a former competitive swimmer, I used to swim around 65km per week, and as a ‘once in a while’ triathlete I used the pool to prepare for the Ironman and Ultraman events. Am grateful to the men and women who keep the pools safe and clean and fun!! . . . Did you smile at someone today ? 😀 . . . #GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of people and organisations to transform their communities and the world. . . . #EveryTuesday #betterworld #giveback #letspoolin #daanutsav
The case has been registered at Colva Police Station under Section 294 IPC and 67 IT Act against Milind. However, this is the second time Milind faces charges of obscenity. In 1995, the Social Service Branch of Mumbai Police had booked him for posing nude for an advertisement campaign.
