Actor Ranveer Singh who received backlash for his nude photoshoot was backed by his fellow actors from the fraternity. The actor who posed nude for a magazine cover, landed into legal trouble after an FIR was filed against him for hurting the sentiments of women and insulting their modesty through his photographs.
After Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham came out in support of the star, the latest to join the bandwagon was fitness freak and enthusiast Milind Soman. The actor expressed his opinion and cheered for Singh in a cryptic post. For the unknown, Milind has also been a victim of brutal online trolling after his picture running on the beach went viral on social media.
With the change in times and mentality of the people, Milind took to Twitter and took a jibe at the opinion of others that changes every minute. In a cryptic post, he mentioned how things have changed since the time of artist Raja Ravi Varma. “There are as many opinions as people in the world. Who would you listen to ?” In another post, he wrote, “Things have changed a little since the time of Raja Ravi Varma”.
