When Milind Soman left an Aamir Khan movie midway as he didn’t get breakfast on time
The movie Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander featuring Aamir Khan and Ayesha Jhulka, became one iconic film in Indian cinema. It was directed by Mansoon Khan and released in 1992. The movie continued to win hearts and impress the movie goers. However, did you know Milind Soman was part of the movie Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander, until he left filming midway?
Milind revealed that he shot for almost 75 per cent of the Aamir Khan starrer. He shared that he threw his bicycle and asked for his breakfast. The actor revealed that the production offered him nothing. And, hence, he left the movie midway because he didn’t get breakfast on time.
“I threw my bicycle saying ‘where’s my breakfast?’ They offered me nothing. I was not at home, I was at the mercy of the production for food,” Milind said in an interview with Barkha Dutt.

The 57-year-old further said that it was a part of the culture of “baad mein khayenge (everyone will eat later)“.
Soman then continued to explain how being happy with what he does is more important to him that featuring in a big movie. The actor explained, “It was not important to me at that time. What was important for me was that I should be happy doing what I am doing, and if I am not, then it doesn’t work.” Milind mentioned how he had no regrets despite the massive success of Jo Jeeta Wohi Sikander.
Talking about Soman, the actor is known for his fitness lifestyle. He often drops motivating posts and has made headlines for the same. Milind rose to fame after he featured in the 1995 music video Made In India. He has appeared in several advertisements and worked in regional movies. His performances in Chaar Aane Ki Baarish, Nakshatra, Jodi Breakers, and Four More Shots Please are well known.
