Everyone’s favourite model of the 90s, Milind Soman, is set to break many hearts today when he ties the knot with his long-time partner Ankita Konwar in a private ceremony in Alibaug. The couple may have borne the onslaught of trolls on social media regularly, but that hasn’t been able to taint their romance in any way.
Despite receiving some internet backlash for dating a much younger woman, Milind Soman has never been bothered about the trolls. Despite facing severe backlash over their 34-year age gap, the couple have finally entered wedlock. Their close friends decided to share this special journey on social media and we bring them to you.
It all began with the Mehndi and Haldi functions. In the pics, the ‘marathon couple were dressed in traditional Assamese attires. While Milind wore a crisp white kurta and dhoti, his bride-to-be Ankita, was seen in a bright yellow outfit and floral jewellery.
The couple seamlessly danced to the tunes of the song “Bann Jaa Tu Meri Rani” and they rocked it!
The couple gave us serious goals with this sweet picture of Ankita’s Henna-coloured hands:
It was time for Haldi functions and the 52-year-old marathoner, fitness icon and supermodel Milind Soman, posed graciously with his air hostess and fellow marathoner, Ankita Konwar, in their Haldi function.
How can we forget his sweet mother? Milind’s mother did her part beautifully when applying Haldi on her gorgeous son:
The couple looked oh-so-in-love in their post-Haldi ceremony as well, just a few hours away from their special day!
No wedding is complete without close friends and family. So here they are, enjoying their every bit with the beautiful couple:
