And that’s what the Made In India boy is doing these days. Running!
Raising awareness about various environmental issues Milind started his run on April 20 in New Delhi and will finish on May 20 in Mumbai. Milind planned to run 60 kilometers every day and will cover the distance of 1500 km between the two major metro in a month’s time. So far he’s 948 km.
The model-turned-actor has participated in Greenathon, NDTV-Toyota’s collaborated initiative to address environmental issues and spread awareness about alternative sources of energy, wildlife conservation, restoring forests and many such pressing issues.
