In the same conversation, Milind addressed on being an s*x symbol and says he has been objectified from the beginning of his career.
Talking to the news portal, Milind Soman says, “Oh, I am not uncomfortable at all, it’s my USP (laughs). Okay seriously, you have to know what are your strengths. It’s a business. If I’m uncomfortable with being a s*x symbol, and being objectified, which I have been, right from the beginning from my career, then I shouldn’t be here. I was not bothered or uncomfortable with it, I was surprised, yes.”
He added, “I just did a music video, a song called Shringaar, and I don’t know why they called me—and it is an objectification of the male persona, and I don’t know why they took me at the age of fifty, and not someone at the age of twenty.”
Meanwhile, Ranveer Singh recently came under netizens’ radar for posing n*de for the Paper Magazine. An FIR has been filed under sections 509, 292, and 294 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and Section 67 A of the IT Act for allegedly hurting the ‘sentiments of women’.
On the other hand, Milind Soman too has been in a similar situation when he did a n*de photoshoot at a beach. Talking about the same, he told, “I didn’t think twice. What am I doing, I’m running on the beach, big deal. When I did my first n*de photoshoot, it was shot in Delhi—in the forest—and I was just walking around naked, and we were just taking pictures. Even after that, I could still do the n*de photoshoot by the beach, and I know it’s nothing serious. Some people may object, some people might appreciate it. It’s human nature, everyone can’t like everything.”
