Looks like Milind Soman, who celebrates his birthday in November, received a few birthday wishes today - on July 28, courtesy Wikipedia. On Twitter, Milind Soman, 55, pointed out that his birthday was reflecting incorrectly on Wikipedia, which has user generated content, meaning it can be edited by any user. Instead of November 4, 1965, Milind Soman's birthday was recorded as November 4, 2020 at one place on the page, and also as July 28, 2020 at another.

In another tweet, Milind Soman pointed out another segment on Wikipedia that needed correction - it said that in 2020, he was "booked" for running naked on a Goa beach. "Apparently I also got booked for running nude on a beach? I did run and the pic is on my Instagram page, but booked?" he tweeted, following which, the Wikipedia report was revised. Milind Soman had shared the photo of himself running on a Goa beach naked on his birthday last year when several news reports stated that a case was registered against him.
