After years of being the most eligible bachelor in the country, Milind Soman has tied the knot with Ankita Konwar. The 52-year-old actor married his girlfriend in a private ceremony at Alibaug, away from Mumbai.

While it was a quiet, private ceremony, the wedding certainly earned quite the publicity online. The pictures and videos of the couple dancing together went viral, signifying that Soman continues to be one of the most popular celebrities. 

The ceremony was conducted in the traditional Maharashtrian style, with Soman dressed in a white kurta for the wedding, while Konwar wore a simple gold and white saree. The entire event began with the 'haldi' ceremony and looks like the two certainly had the most fun. 

Actress Dipannita Sharma, who attended the wedding, played photographer as she captured the bride and the groom decked in flowers. Soman, a fitness and environmental crusader, seemed right at home surrounded by the eco-friendly celebrations. 

However, the happiness of the occassion did not stop some of Soman's female fan following from being sad. 

While the event was devoid of the usual film industry firepower, the music and dance more than made up for it. Soman and his bride danced to the song 'Ishq Sufiana' from The Dirty Picture (2011) on the eve of the ceremony. 

This is Soman's second marriage, after his divorce from French actress Mylène Jampanoï in 2009. For now, the actor deserves the happiness coming his way.
