Actor and model Milind Soman is best known for his appearance in the music video ‘Made In India.’ He also starred in films like 16 December, Rules: Pyar Ka Superhit Formula, Say Salaam India and Bajirao Mastani.
On Thursday, the actor shared a blast from his past, a picture from his first advertisement shoot in 1989. He mentioned his inability to formulate definite career paths at the age of 23 and was filled with thoughts as to whether he ‘should start a career as a waiter or a cook’.
Sharing the picture, he captioned: “#ThrowbackThursday ! My first advertisement in 1989 I was offered Rs 50,000 to shoot some pictures for a couple of hours and I was so shocked, I thought the people were completely mad I was 23 years old, working in a hotel at that point, wondering if I should start a career as a waiter or a cook, am sure I would have loved working in hotels too the world is an amazing place!”

In times of despair, Milind’s posts seem to infuse high spirits within us. A few days back, he had shared a picture of himself form Lonavala and had penned how it is integral to surround ourselves with love: “We are transformed little by little every moment. We are not the same as we were when we we were children, or teenagers, or at any other age. Our bodies, our minds, our attitudes and perceptions are all changing due to internal and external influences. Everything we eat, read or watch, every interaction and conversation has an effect. Mindfulness and awareness help to identify and guide this transformation moment by moment so that we may become the people we want to be and create the world we want to live in. Stay positive. Love yourself. Surround yourself with love.”
