Health & Nutrition - - CONTENTS -

The whole of Magna House went agog with ex­cite­ment when our very own marathon hunk Milind So­man came to un­veil the Jan­uary is­sue of ‘Health & Nu­tri­tion’, the cover of which

he had graced. Dressed ca­su­ally in a black Pinkathon tee and yoga pants (from his brand ‘Deivee’), and look­ing as hand­some as ever, de­spite his salt ‘n’ pep­per hair, Milind caught the eye of ev­ery

sin­gle girl in the room. Af­ter em­cee Naz­ifa Cha­ra­nia kick-started the event with for­mal in­tro­duc­tions, the hunky marathoner was joined on the dais by Nari Hira, Chair­man, Magna Pub­lish­ing Co Ltd, and Vin­o­dini Kr­ish­naku­mar, Ed­i­tor, ‘Health & Nu­tri­tion’. The ea­ger me­dia couldn’t wait to bom­bard him with questions… To the first ques­tion on how he man­aged to look so hot, even at 53, Milind laugh­ingly replied, “I still feel like I am 25!” And added, “But yes, I have al­ways made my health pri­or­ity. I move away from all the neg­a­tive en­ergy that causes me stress, and that is some­thing I al­ways did since child­hood.” He then went on to speak about his ro­mance with run­ning. “I was al­ways a sports en­thu­si­ast and was into na­tional level swim­ming since the age of nine.

I par­tic­i­pated in the very first marathon in Mum­bai in 2003, and next week, I’ll be com­plet­ing 15 years in marathon run­ning,” he said, with a hint of pride on his face. The sub­ject then veered from how he quit smok­ing to his new trekking show on BBC to his cur­rent ob­ses­sion - his 26-yearold girl­friend Ankita Kon­war! To a ques­tion on whether Ankita re­al­ized how lucky she was to have some­one as hot as him, Milind smiled mis­chie­vously and said, “Yes, she does,” but was quick enough to add, “She’s amaz­ing too!” Putting all doubts to rest about his im­pend­ing mar­riage - and also break­ing many hearts in the process - Milind fi­nally re­vealed that mar­riage was in­deed on the cards. “Yes, we have dis­cussed “I have al­ways made my health pri­or­ity. I move away from all the neg­a­tive en­ergy that causes me stress.” — Milind

mar­riage. And I will be very happy to be mar­ried again!” he said ex­cit­edly. The event came to a close with a fi­nal round of the shut­ter­bugs snap­ping away, and some im­pa­tient selfie re­quests. But Milind stuck to his sig­na­ture rule of ‘10 push-ups for a selfie’ (a fan could earn a selfie with him only af­ter 10 push-ups) – his way of us­ing his pop­u­lar­ity to pro­mote fit­ness. And die-hard fans only hap­pily agreed…
