Milind Soman mostly accompanies his throwback posts with interesting anecdotes or thoughtful notes. Earlier, he posted a picture from when he was 13 and wrote: “Me at age 13. I wouldn’t say the features are extraordinary but I always did have a good jawline, thanks to my genes. Good skin, good hair and good health came from swimming twice a day in the neighborhood municipal pool…Another and most important advantage of good genes is common sense, which like any other genetic advantage we are born with, we lose if we don’t use!”
Sharing a picture from his pre-modelling days, Milind wrote: “It’s a rare one, taken sometime in the late eighties, and like I said, being very shy, I was not a fan of being photographed.”
