Model, actor and fitness enthusiast Milind Soman, who celebrated his 52nd birthday on November 4, is currently holidaying in Norway with his alleged girlfriend Ankita Konwar. While Milind has always been an eye candy for women of almost all age groups, his recent relationship has got the Twitter divided.
Some reports have identified Ankita to be an 18-year-old air-hostess while some others state her age to be 23. But whatever the age might be, the Twitterati don't seem to be happy with Soman dating a girl much younger to him.
Things started to backfire when Soman decided to thank his fans for their birthday wishes via an Instagram post wherein he shared a selfie with Ankita and wrote, "Thank you all for your wishes! Have funnnnn !! :) #Tromso #NorthernLights."
Soon the users went berserk over the age gap and started trolling Soman by calling him 'tauji', 'psycho' and 'sugar-free daddy' among other names.
Some termed the situation as a real-life 'Cheeni kum' moment and said that Soman is older than Ankita's father.

Peeps, If Milind Soman can score a half-age with that fitness, you, get those feet in those dusty shoes and run 😂— Highsenberg (@VeryHighsenberg) November 6, 2017
Others defended Soman and said that if the couple doesn't mind the age gap, why are others going berserk over it.
Another day, another outrage. Needless interference in someone else's life and relationship. Society refusing to grow up.#MilindSoman— Aneesh (@AneeshChandoke) November 6, 2017

There are many 50+ married Indian men unofficially dating much younger women,what’s wrong with Milind being official about it #MilindSoman— Anuradha Naganathan (@AnuNaganathan) November 6, 2017
I think love has no age limit...Can happen at any age with anyone...I don’t feel anything wrong in that #milindsoman— Princy ツ🎧 (@Princy2weets) November 6, 2017
In fact, a user also stated that the ranting comes from "feminists" who are "as usual jealous as they cant even find a man half as handsome as he is(sic)."

Soman, however, remains unaffected by the criticism he's received over the past few days and continues to enjoy his vacation in Oslo. He posted, "Happy arctic time at my @airbnb home in Oslo and Tromso #livethere #ad #Never2early4aselfie @earthy_5," alongside the album.
