Model turned actor Milind Soman has been in news for his participation in The Great India Run for which he is running barefoot from Ahmedabad to Mumbai that covers a distance of 570 kms. Milind has a company now as his mother Usha Soman has joined her son.
Usha Soman was seen dressed in a sari and running barefoot and was seen matching pace with Milind. Milind and his mother were seen running near Manor in Thane District and their video has gone viral on the internet. However, this is not the first time Usha has showed off her physical strength. In 2014, the former professor participated in a marathon where she ran 100 kms in less than 48 hours.
Milind in an earlier interview said, “I give credit to my mom for inspiring and encouraging me to take sports seriously. She was a professor of bio-chemistry and at the age of 60 when she retired she started trekking.” The two week long Marathon will come to an end on August 4, 2016 in Mumbai.
The model turned actor added that he is in a process to launch running saris for Indian women who do not feel comfortable running in conventional sports wear. Soman in an interview said that they will soon be launching a special sari that will be light and has less volume of cloth so that they can feel comfortable running while wearing it.
