It was around this time that my then-boyfriend passed away suddenly. It was heartbreaking – I felt like there was no turning back. A few months later, I was assigned to Chennai. I was staying in a hotel with my colleagues. Once in the hall I saw a tall, sturdy man. It was Milind Soman! I was a big fan! So I went to say hello to him, but he was busy. A few days later, I saw him again at the hotel disco.

She took her time to fall in love, even though Milind convinced her that he was the right man for her. “But I still couldn’t bring myself to fully involve myself. Until the day I told him that because of my past, with my boyfriend, there was a part of me that couldn’t let go. To which he said, “When I fell in love with you, I fell in love with all of you. Even the part that bears the burden of your past. So have no fear, we are in the same boat. It is That’s when I knew he was the right man for me!
