Nineties super male model Milind Soman finds his past haunting him. A nude photo of his with then girlfriend Madhu Sapre is still popping up on his social media account. Milind and Madhu stood nude, hugging each other along with a python. This was 25 years ago. The actor wonders if public reaction would be the same had this shoot taken place in present situation.
Super model-turned-actor Milind Soman said that his nude photo with his former girlfriend and model Madhu Sapre keeps popping up on his social media timeline. Now, the actor wonders how the public would have reacted had this shoot taken place in the present circumstances.
Soman took to Twitter to share the controversial photo for which he had to face 14-year-long court battle as he was booked for violation of the Wildlife Protection Act for using a python in the photo shoot.
The actors posed for a footware advertisement then. Now, as this photo keeps surfacing on his time line, the actor and fitness freak wrote, "Keep seeing this pop up on my timelines every once in a while. It's 25 years old, at that time no social media no internet either I think! wonder what the reaction would have been if it had been released today.”
Miland is now 58 years old. Back then in 1990, he was a prominent model known for his awesome looks. He is remembered as the ‘Made In India‘ man after he featured in the famous album of singer Alisha Chinai's Made In India in collaboration with lyricist Biddu.
While Soman was the most-sought-after for advertising brands, Madhu was not far behind. Her Miss India Universe title in 1992 gave her career the much-needed push. The two models fell for each other then.
The Tuffs brand offered the couple the assignment and the shoot went smooth. The couple was pretty comfortable with each other, until it was finally published in the magazines.
Soon after, the photo courted controversy a case under the Wildlife Protection Act was filed. Even the industry failed to stand by the creators and the models.
The couple split in 2006. While Milind Soman married a French woman and later divorced her, Sapre got married to Italian businessman and has a two-year-old daughter now.
