Ever since Milind and Ankita's relationship became official, the two have been trolled on social media for their huge age gap. It must be mentioned here that Milind is 53, and his wife, Ankita is 27, and their 26-year age gap has attracted lots of trolling online. After being a target of so much negavity because of this, Milind has shared his feelings about the same. In an interview to The Week recently, Made in India model has said, "I do not really consider the age gap. Of course, two people are always different, in terms of age, background, experiences and culture. So there are always things that need to be understood and accepted. There are old habits that you have to unlearn to keep a relationship strong, positive and healthy. It is important to make your partner feel comfortable and help her achieve what she wants."
He also talked about his professional life and was quoted as saying, "I travel about 20 days a month. I started an event management company in 1989 and have been an event manager for almost 35 years. We do a lot of events. Then I have a startup which is into designing activewear for women. I have a company which makes energy bars. I am part of a foundation which does work on menstrual hygiene. All these keep me occupied all the time." (Don't Miss: Neha Kakkar Breaks Down On The Sets Of Indian Idol 10, Amidst Her Break-Up News With Himansh Kohli)
Coming back to Milind and Ankita's age gap and the trolling that follows, Milind had earlier as well commented on the same. In an interview, he had shared, "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.” He furthed added, ‘Milind and Ankita look like father and daughter’, he replied, “I guess some people find it unusual. They seem surprised.”
On August 01, 2018, Ankita shared the following video on her Instagram handle and captioned it beautifully opening up about their love story. She wrote, "After almost 5 years, reliving that magic, where our eyes met for the first time, in spite of all the loud music and a crazy crowd. We knew it was magic at the very moment and it has been the same ever since A crazy story how we ended up there in the club though Thank you @radhika.1190 for this beautiful moment @milindrunning #foreveryouandi."
Ankita and Milind had a fairytale wedding in the presence of their close friends and family members. Thanking each one of them for being a part of their big day, the lovely wifey wrote, “Growing up, I personally never liked weddings, felt like a lot of effort for no good reason. Attended no one’s wedding but my only sister’s! But that one wedding changed me. The energy, the support from the family and friends is exactly what a couple needs when they start a new life together. We did have a beautiful wedding with the lovely family and friends and their immense effort to make the day memorable for us was/is/always will be a true blessing. Thank you.” (Recommended Read: Is Cricketer Rohit Sharma's Wife, Ritika Sajdeh Pregnant? Her Pic In A Loose Dress Shows Baby Bump)
