When I started working on Milind Soman’s profile (which was earlier intended for Grazia’s anniversary issue in April), I decided to approach it with a ‘say yes to everything, try to be cool’ attitude, with the idea that maybe I’d capture something real about India’s first-ever male supermodel. And he didn’t disappoint. When he arrived at the cover shoot (a couple of days before the government-mandated lockdown was imposed, in March), it was evident that he was revelling in the flow of his cool energy. He acknowledged everyone in the room, obliged a few members of the crew with a selfie (only after they agreed to do pushups), and engaged in conversation with the photographer for the day, Bikramjit, with a wry smile permanently plastered on his face. Our interview started with a handshake, transitioned to a shoulder squeeze, and then eased into a rather interesting conversation about life, fitness, and passion.
