Milind Soman remembers his days at RSS shakha; says he is baffled by ‘propaganda’ about Sangh
Milind Soman has always been in news owing to his love for fitness. The actor-model has always participated in marathons and social sports events. Milind recently revealed in his memoir ‘Made in India’ that in his youth, he was a member of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
A report in The Print quoted Milind’s book: “When I read today all the subversive, communal propaganda the media attributes to RSS shakhas, I am frankly baffled. My memories of what happened at our shakha between 6 and 7 p.m. each weekday evening are completely different—we marched about in our khaki shorts, did some yoga, worked out in a traditional outdoor gymnasium with no fancy equipment, sang songs and chanted Sanskrit verses that we did not understand the meanings of, played games and had a bunch of fun with our fellows.”
After Milind’s memoir went online, he has been trending all over the internet. Soon after the revelation, Milind occupied the top spot on the trends list on Twitter and the actor tweeted about it as well. He wrote, “Trending at 54 for an experience I had at the age of 10. 🤪🤪🤪🤪 wish it was about swimming, which was at the same time!”

Milind had earlier announced his book on his social media profile with a very heart touching excerpt from his book, he narrated that 1995 was a very significant year for him as his father passed away that year and he left him with mixed feeling but not much grief. He wrote, “I had never had a great deal of affection for him, which is rather sad when you come to think of it because he cared deeply for me in his own way.”
His memoir is co-written by author Roopa Pai and published by Penguin Random House. It chronicles his career, his love for fitness, battle with alcohol addiction and the women in his life.
