Milind Soman, who’s back in the spotlight after his recent Ironman triathlon feat, looks hotter than ever at 49. We ask a few models and actresses about other dreamboats who have gotten better with age
At 49, Milind Soman successfully completed the “world’s toughest triathlon” in Zurich recently. While his achievement is laudable, what caught our eye is how the model-actor is steadily getting hotter even as he gets older. He looks smouldering hot even though he is only months away from touching the fifth decade of his life. Looking around, hitlist discovered lot many men who not only carry their age very well, but their sex appeal too has actually gone up a few notches than when they were younger. We asked a few young hotties to name that one man they think is getting sexier, rather than wiser, with age...

Candice Pinto, model
My pick: Akshay Kumar
Why: Akshay has become more masculine with age. I feel grey hair suits him a lot and the fact that he has looked after himself so well shows. Milind Soman also features on my list, as he is one person who experiments with new things and leads a disciplined life, which always helps in the long run.
Deepti Gujral, model
My pick: Anil Kapoor
Why: He is a conventional, Indian looking man who I find to be very attractive. I admire actors like him who haven’t given upon their body even at this age. Being a model myself, I understand the kind of motivation and dedication that you require to get up and work on an everyday basis. Milind Soman and Arjun Rampal have been models
for such a long time that it is ingrained in their lifestyle to work towards looking a certain way, but for an actor to do it is commendable.
Alesia Raut, model
My pick: Salman Khan and Aamir Khan
Why: I am a Salman Khan fan. There is something about him which makes him very attractive. Call it the charm, his sense of humour, body or skin, he looks very good for his age. Aamir Khan too is looking better with age. I love his chocolate boy looks and respect his dedication. No matter how grey he turns with films like Ghajni, that innocence on his face still remains.
Sucheta Sharma James, model
My pick: Akshay Kumar
Why: Akshay Kumar is one actor who not only is looking better with age, but is also one of the few men who has achieved six-pack abs without steroids. He is an inspiration for many. He is particular about his workout regime and doesn’t smoke, drink, or keeps late nights. Plus, he is into martial arts and promotes other forms of fitness training, which is why the 48-year-old actor is only looking better.
Shruti Seth, former VJ and model
My pick: Milind Soman
Why: I believe that all men age very well. However, Milind Soman looks great for his age. He is one person who has not only let age do its work, but has also worked at it as well. It’s all about how much you work on your body. Another person who deserves a mention is
Anil Kapoor. He has aged so gracefully and is really fit for this age.
Nimrat Kaur, actress
My pick: Akshay Kumar
Why: I know that you are as old as you feel, but discipline and dedication go a long way in keeping one’s body fit. For me, the one actor who is conscious of his health and body is Akshay Kumar. He is beyond human.
Sameera Reddy, actress
My pick: Salman Khan
Why: My definition of hot is someone who carries himself well and is effortless too. On the contrary, a person who knows he is desirable and also flaunts it is a turn off. Salman is truly hot and refuses to age. The more I see him, the more it shocks me. I was taken aback by the way he looked in his latest release, Bajrangi Bhaijaan. It looks like he drinks a special potion to look that way.
Dipannita Sharma, model-turned-actress
My pick: Kabir Bedi
Why: He has aged gracefully and hasn’t lost his charm. For me, a desirable man is not someone with a good body or a face but someone who carries himself with grace, chivalry and is polite. He embodies all that. When I look at him, I feel that he has gone through a lot in life and is still so positive. That makes him attractive.
