But now she has started regularising. More than two years ago, after looking at me, she started running," Milind Soman told told ANI. Milind Soman is also a marathoner and Ankita also joins him more often now. Pictures of the working out together and participating in different events, often find a place on social media trends.
"I never told her! I never said you have to do this! But just watching the way I am, the way I feel, and what my attitude, she has started that," Milind Soman explained to ANI. His mom Usha Soman is also takes part in several marathons.
Speaking about an awareness programme for breast cancer - Pinkathon - founded by him, Milind Soman said, "I have been running since years but I found that the participation of women was less at events. So I just thought that we should create a space that is only for women."
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar married in April. The wedding happened as per traditional Maharashtrian rituals.
Milind Soman, who has been part of films like Rules: Pyaar Ka Superhit Formula, 16 December and Bajirao Mastani, made a brief appearance in 2017's Chef. He hasn't announced his next film yet.
