In the summers of 2016, Ankita visited Milind’s farmhouses in Lonavala for the first time to spend some quality time with the new man in her life, whom she gave the nickname”wicked man.”

She even celebrated Diwali with Milind Soman and his mother in Mumbai.
At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet. Instead, she became a runner as after being in a relationship with the “Marathon Man of Bollywood” has turned her a marathoner like Milind.
Now, she frequently participates in ‘Pinkathon,’ India’s Biggest Women’s Run, co-founded by Milind Soman.
The cute couple is a frequent traveller and has been going on vacations worldwide.
She is very close to his friends and family, who have warmly accepted their relationship. That’s why, she never misses a chance to spend some quality time with his family.
In November 2017, Milind travelled to Assam to meet Ankita’s parents. While his stay in Assam, he also attended her cousin’s wedding, where she introduced him to her extended family.
This is how they celebrated the 4th anniversary (26 February) of their first meeting.
