Milind Soman's Wife Ankita Konwar on Trolls: Some Even Said I Must Have Been 12 When He Met Me

Ankita Konwar, 28, has penned a lengthy note on Instagram, talking about the time when the Internet obsessed over her age difference with her now-husband Milind Soman.

Milind Soman and wife Ankita Konwar got married in 2018, and their union raised many people's eyebrows, mostly because of the age gap between the two.

Now, Ankita, 28, has penned a lengthy note on Instagram, talking about the time when the Internet obsessed over her age difference with the 54-year-old actor-model.

Ankita's post was accompanied by a selfie, which she described, writing, "Throwback to a time when people decided I was 16 (or 18 at times, depending on their mood) and brewed all kinds of crazy stories around me and my then-boyfriend/now-husband. Some even went up to say that I must have been 12 when he met me since they 'heard from somewhere' that we have been together for four years already."

In a Humans of Bombay post earlier, Ankita had said she connected with Milind after exchanging numbers at a party and got married after dating for five years.

Referring to trolls, who had flooded the Internet with speculation and comments about Ankita and Milind's age gap, she wrote in her post: "Some of them have absolutely nothing better to do than speak less of someone else online because they clearly lack courage and self-respect... They will always believe you are doing what you're doing only for attention, however good that may be... It is impossible for them to believe that 'good' can actually exist, love actually exists."

#throwback to a time when people decided I was 16 (or 18 at times, depending on their mood) and brewed all kinds of crazy stories around me and my then boyfriend/now husband 😂 Some even went up to say that I must have been 12 when he met me since they “heard from somewhere” that we have been together for 4 years already 😃 So let me just put it this way, people will talk because most of them lack common sense. Also some of them have absolutely nothing better to do than speak less of someone else online because they clearly lack courage and self respect. And most of these people have never experienced love in their lives. They need help; mentally, physically, spiritually. But never get it because of their attitudes and the environment they probably live in. So next time you hear something bad about yourself or see a hate comment, just understand that they are taking out their frustration by believing and saying something less of you. In a way, you’re still helping them 😀 But please don’t start an argument with them because that’s what they want, attention. Because they have been so deprived of it. They will always believe you are doing what you’re doing only for attention, however good that may be. You see, they can only see their own reflection in you. They only understand the world they have seen so far. Where they’ve been hurt, wounded and never healed. Their parents probably could never teach them what is good behaviour or right from wrong. It is impossible for them to believe that ‘good’ can actually exist, love actually exists 😊 So just keep yourself away from all this negativity and don’t take them seriously. Blocking is always a good option too😄 And hope they heal. So that the world is a better place someday. Oh btw, how I dealt with it at that time? Laughed at every trash of a news article or every hate comment together with my husband. Always grateful for the laughter those people and their sick mentality brought us though 😂😂 Here’s to always being and staying positive ❤️ . . #throwbackthursday #throwback #realtalk #trolls #mentalhealthawareness #peopleareawesome #hearttoheart
