On Tuesday, Milind shared a creative GIF on Instagram and wrote, “The tobacco epidemic is one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced, killing more than 8 million people a year around the world. World Health Organization. Every 31st of May, World No Tobacco Day, is a celebration for me, and also a reminder of the stupidest thing I ever did – smoke!!”
He added, “I started smoking at the age of 32, on the sets of Captain Vyom, a sci-fi TV series I was shooting at the time. There was no reason to start, just hanging out with people who smoked, trying it out and getting hooked. I got addicted really quickly and was soon smoking 20-30 cigarettes a day. Was tough to stop and took me a long, long time, but I was fortunate that I could. I think I got off lightly. Probably because a lot of other good habits. Many are not so lucky.”
Milind, who is known for being a fitness enthusiast, shares pictures of his exercise routines and diets on social media and encourages people to opt for a healthy living lifestyle. On the work front, Milind was last seen in the web series Four More Shots Please!.
