One of India’s original supermodels, Milind Soman broke innumerable hearts when he decided to get hitched this year. Having spurned an engineering career to pursue modelling, the 52-year-old burst onto the scene (and how) when he starred in Alisha Chinoy’s Made in India.

That absolutely drool-worthy shirtless scene turned Soman into a household name and the ultimate fantasy for all genders. That’s not all, in the 1990s, the model and then-girlfriend Madhu Sapre decided to pose nude for a Tuffs shoe ad. The only thing covering the two fit af models was a python. This caused a massive controversy, leading to a case that lasted 14 years.

Nevertheless, it still remains one of the most iconic ads in the country and still one of the steamiest we’ve come across. Below, we catalogue a few posts that prove that years later, he still continues to be the ultimate daddy.
