When 52-year-old Indian actor Milind Soman posted a series of vacation photos on Instagram celebrating his birthday in Tromso, Norway, with his new flame, Ankita Konwar, an 18-year-old flight attendant, he faced backlash for this relationship when the images went viral.
Soman and Konwar have been dating for four months, and some fans don’t mind their May-December romance.

Others are more critical of their 34-year age gap.
All the idiots supporting Milind Soman – imagine that is your daughter. Legal, illegal, of age or not – would you still approve it??

Dating expert Tammy Shaklee, founder of match-making service He’s For Me, doesn’t think the years between Soman and Konwar are a deal-breaker.
“I do believe everyone deserves their special someone, whatever that looks like to them,” Shaklee, who’s based in Austin, Texas, tells The Post. “I do know couples with a 30-year age difference who are genuinely in love.”
“Love is love — as long as it’s a legal age, of course.”
