Milind Soman’s relationship with a much younger Ankita Konwar had created a stir not only in the industry but also among netizens. They trolled the 52 year old model-actor endlessly for being in a relationship with Ankita, who is in her 20s.
In an interview with a leading daily, Milind spoke about the negativity around their relationship and said, “I don’t really bother about it all. The people who talk about it don’t really know us, so it’s actually amusing.”
Talking about his girlfriend Ankita, Milind earlier told a leading daily, “I don’t really worry about competition in anything because basically, it’s about me. And if it’s a relationship, it’s about both the people. And I don’t consider age at all for anything — whether its relationships, fitness or health or whatever.”
Last year, in an interview with a leading news portal, Milind had spoken about his girlfriend and had said, “The girl I’m with right now actually likes my restlessness. She accepts that I may be in one place today and a different one tomorrow, or doing one thing today and something else tomorrow. In fact, she’s a bit like that (the two live in separate cities).”
When you grow older, you realize that all that matters is the connection between two people. What the other person’s dreams are, what they do, what they want to be, that’s their business and you have to give them space for that,” he had added.
