Supermodel-actor Milind Soman is rooting for his friend Rahul Dev’s win in Bigg Boss 10 and says he is glad Rahul has been able to survive in the show, which tests one’s “mental toughness.”
Milind feels Rahul’s calm and composed approach towards matters in the Bigg Boss house has got him a lot of fans and he is touted as one of the strongest contenders for the win. “I have seen a bit of this season. Rahul is a cool guy, he is shy and doesn’t talk much but is still there. So, I think people are liking him,” Milind told reporters.
The actor, who was speaking at the launch of Colors ‘Pinkathon’ in Mumbai, said the show is a good mental exercise but he will only participate if he gets to be on the treadmill all day.
“It’s a great test of mental fitness. In a house where people go mad, they do stuff which they won’t do normally, to centre yourself and understand yourself and go through that experience is very important.
“I may never participate because I can’t spare so many days. But if I get to be on the treadmill, I will think about it,” he said.
Pinkathon, which is a women’s marathon, will take place on December 18. Milind is the ambassador of the Pinkathon. The 51-year-old actor, who is among the fittest personalities in the showbiz, feels today’s actors are quite conscious about how they look and finds this trend healthy.
“If you look at the ’80s, there wasn’t much awareness about fitness but today, all actors and celebrities are very conscious of their appearance. If they want to be seen in public, they have to have a glow on their face and fit bodies,” Milind said.
The actor added that he is also happy for the fact that there is increased awareness in women about importance of fitness. Also present at the event were Colors CEO Raj Nayak and VJ-actress Anusha Dandekar, who is a supporter of the initiative.
