Made In India, Made In India... Ek Dil Chaahiye That's Made In India- while we totally loved Alisha Chinai in the song, which became almost synonymous to 90s hit pop tracks, we can't thank the casting enough for gifting Milind Soman to us! As the song neared its end, we couldn't get our eyes off from the bare-bodied Milind, wearing a red dhoti as he came to take his queen in his arms. It was the very day that made us fall in love with him! While our love for Milind will increase with each passing day, it is his now-wife, Ankita Konwar, who managed to steal his heart and are now, happily enjoying their marital bliss together.

April 22, 2018, was the day when we could hear a zillion ladies' heart, shattering all at once (not literally, silly!), when Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar got married in a private, fun-filled wedding in Alibaug. And as revealed by Ankita herself, in an interaction with Humans of Bombay, the couple had gotten married thrice! One was at Alibaug, the second was under a waterfall in Spain and the third time, at a place called 'end of the world'. And if we were to ever give a 'Husband-wife of the Millenium award', do we have any qualms in deciding who should get it? (We know your answer already!)
Milind Soman is undeniably one of the hottest men in the country. His looks, physique, love for his wife and mother, his contribution towards fitness never fails to amaze us. With a habit of walking by the memory lane and sharing throwbacks, Milind took to Instagram on December 05, 2019, and shared a throwback picture of himself from his late 30s. He captioned the picture as "#throwbackthursday 2003! Age 38." Just as we continued to drool, his wife, Ankita Konwar asked him to get married to her again! Her comment on the picture said, "Umm shall we get married again?" To this, Milind replied, "Anyday, anywhere", which was backed by hearts and three 'happiness always' emoji.
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had celebrated Halloween 2019 with great pomp and valour. While the Bajirao Mastani star had dressed as Joker, his missus had turned into Joker’s ladylove (and Milind’s too!), Harley Quinn for a party. And need we say how amazing they had looked?

In an interview with The Telegraph, Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had revealed many astonishing facts about their relationship and their courtship days. Milind had revealed in the interview that it was the 26-year generation gap that had attracted her towards him. But were Ankita’s parents okay about it? The missus had said, “My mom was a little surprised.” To which, Milind had added, “Her mother is younger than me.” Ankita had balanced the same by saying, “By two years. She always liked him as a personality, but she was a little worried. ‘Are you sure?’ she asked me.”
And this is what Ankita Konwar had told her parents, “I told them it’s not that I have to get married to him or something… I am just informing you that there is somebody in my life and I really like that person and I will spend my life with him, whether it’s going to be a wedding or no wedding. My mum said: ‘Okay, maybe someday you will change your mind (laughs)’.” The Made In India star then recalled a funny incident, “And, after sometime, they wanted us to get married. In 2017 winter, we went to this fashion week and somebody took a picture and put it in the paper and we were holding hands wearing the same T-shirt. They wrote in the caption: ‘Milind Soman with his girlfriend at ’SS18’. Some people said she was 18. That became a big thing. Then her parents started getting a little anxious. By then she had already thought that she wanted to get married.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Reveals The Reason Behind Marrying Saif, Says It Is Not A Crime To Fall In Love)
Milind Soman and Ankita Konwar had felt an ‘instant’ connection when they had met for the first time. But what was Ankita’s first reaction about Milind? She had stated, “I was with AirAsia at that time. I had just come in from Malaysia because AirAsia was setting up in India at that time. So, I was one of the 16 people to come here and help set up the company. I saw him and thought would go and say ‘hi’ to him, but he was so busy on the phone. At the nightclub, my friend pushed me to go say hi. I don’t like nightclubs and I haven’t been to one after that. I don’t like crowded places. I had that urge. I had to go the club that day.” Milind too, had added, “She had seen me at the hotel before we met at the nightclub. We were staying in the same hotel. We went back to that nightclub last year. It was afternoon and it was shut. We just went to see... Oh this is where we met!”
