We will either see him running, cycling, swimming or engaged in some other form of physical training always with a smile. Milind Soman, the original heartthrob of the 90s continues to rule the hearts of women with his usual charm. In fact news of his marriage with longtime girlfriend, Ankita Konwar left many women followers of the hunk disheartened. See their honeymoon photos!

In an interview with DNA, Milind was asked why we don't see him in films too often, to which he responded matter-of-factly: “Because, I don't get offers. Directors and producers don't come to me with work. That's the reason you don't see because I enjoy acting. Some people tell me that I am good at it. In fact, a lot of directors have called me saying that they have enjoyed my work here and there but they never asked me to do a film with them which I find a little strange.”

He was last seen in Raja Krishna Menon’s 2017 film ‘Chef’ that had Saif Ali Khan in lead role. Clearing the air that he is still interested in acting and wants more offers his way, Milind said, “I did a film last year called Chef. I did a film a year before called Bajirao Mastani. I did a web-series this year. So, I do it often enough,” adding, “So, it's not that I don't do it at all. I act in projects when the projects come to me and I think that it might be interesting and I have the time, then I do it.”

If he feels that the industry hasn’t truly used his potential, Milind said, “Well that might seem a little self-absorbed and arrogant for me to say that but I haven't yet explored my potential as an actor. In fact my potential for many things. And a lot is left that I will like to do. I would definitely like to do more films and play more characters and be surprised and have fun.”
