"I enjoy being fit. I love feeling good mentally and physically and being able to live my life the way I want. For that, a certain level of fitness is essential," Milind told IANSlife.

With a minimalistic sense of style, the fitness icon has completed the Ironman Triathlon -- an extremely gruelling marathon which involves a 3.8-km swim, 180.2-km cycle ride and 42.2-km run. He won the "Ironman" title by completing it in under 16 hours.

Not just that, he says that the Ironman Triathlon is the minimum standard of fitness that he likes to maintain.<br>Milind is also one of the founders of Pinkathon -- a women's-only marathon. "It is always great to think of new concepts that inspire people who normally wouldn't, to get up and run," he says about innovating in the fitness arena.

He recently turned a Friend of the Brand for the Swiss watchmaker Favre-Leuba and plans to take its Raider Harpoon timepiece for a diving test soon. The competitive swimmer says that he likes "tough luxury, which means that I get style, excellence and convenience, combined with durability".

On the acting front, Milind is busy with the second season of web-series "Four More Shots Please".
