Milind Soman gets love while FIR against Poonam Pandey for stripping on Goa beach, Apurva Asrani says ‘we are kinder to our nude men’
Two actors decided to strip on Goa beaches recently. While one of them was slapped with an FIR, the second was praised for his fit body at the age of 55. Given the diverse reactions to Poonam Pandey and Milind Soman’s photos, writer-editor Apurva Asrani has said that we are perhaps “kinder to our nude men”.
Milind posted a picture of himself running in his birthday suit on Tuesday and the post was flooded with appreciation of the actor’s fitness at the age of 55. On the other hand, an FIR was filed against Poonam for shooting an ‘obscene video’ on a Goa beach recently.
Apurva wrote while sharing pictures of both actors, “#PoonamPandey & #MilindSoman both stripped down to their birthday suits in #Goa recently. Pandey partly, Soman completely. Pandey is in legal trouble--for obscenity. Soman is being lauded for his fit body at age 55. I guess we are kinder to our nude men than to our nude women.”
Milind shared the image on Wednesday to mark his 55th birthday. “Happy birthday to me! 55 and running,” he wrote alongside the picture. His wife Ankita had also shared pictures wishing him a happy birthday. “Happy Birthday to the man who has my heart and soul. I love you with every molecule of my existence. I celebrate you every single day Turned tomato red after a 12k beach run #happybirthday #55 #happybirthdaymilindsoman,” she wrote. The actor’s fans were impressed by his fit body.
Meanwhile, the women’s wing of the Goa Forward Party filed a police complaint against Poonam Pandey, for allegedly shooting an ‘obscene’ video in the state. On Wednesday, an FIR was also registered against an unnamed person at the Canacona Police Station, for shooting the video featuring Poonam.
“Based on the complaint lodged by Assistant Engineer sub-division II works division, Water Resources Department, an offence has been registered under Section 294 of IPC. The police are investigating and further sections may be added as the investigation proceeds,” Pankaj Kumar Singh, Superintendent of Police (SP) South Goa told ANI.
