India's Iron Man Milind Soman has been wooing girls even in his mid-fifties. The model-actor is known for his fitness and could easily pass off as a thirty-something. He shot to fame when he appeared in singer Alisha Chinai's music video Made In India and mesmerized everyone with his stunning looks. But did you know Milind Soman was paid Rs 50,000 for an hour's work in his first ad campaign as a model?
Sharing a couple of images from his first assignment, Milind walked down the memory and shared his experience with his fans who suffered from a major nostalgia after looking at his post.
"My first advertisement campaign 1989! Before this campaign I did not even know that modeling was a profession. It was a surprise phone call, out of the blue, from a person who had seen me somewhere, asking me to shoot a few pics. Having been a really shy boy, I was reluctant. But when they offered Rs 50,000 for an hours work, I had to say yes ? thank you Rasna Behl," Milind Soman wrote on Instagram sharing his throwback pictures.

Last month, Milind celebrated his 55th birthday by running nude on a beach in Goa. "Happy birthday to me ! #55," he wrote while sharing the picture on Instagram and Twitter, and gave photo credit to his wife Ankita Konwar.
This was not the first time Milind has bared it all for the camera. He created quite the frenzy way back in the early 1990s when he posed nude along with former Miss India Madhu Sapre for an advertisement.
On the work front, Milind was last seen in the web series Four More Shots Please! as Dr Aamir Warsi. The popular web series is set for a third season, with actress Tannishtha Chatterjee on board to direct all episodes of the season. He will now be seen playing the role of a transgender in Ekta Kapoor's web series Paurashpur which traces the story of a medieval city fraught with crime, corruption, abuse of power, misogyny, rape and love.
