Milind Soman and Shahana Goswami, who have beendating for sometime now, are now are open about their romance. At a recently concluded international awards event, they were seen giving interviews together holding hands and behaving like new lovers do. Word is, they are ready to take their relationship to the next level and that Shahana will be shifting in with Milind shortly.
Milind, who is recently separated from his French wife says, "It's true that Shahana and I are in love and are dating each other but we aren't moving in together. We've known each other for the last six years but it's only in the last five months that we have come closer and started enjoying each other's company more. Today, our relationship is deeper and more intense."
A source close to the couple says that they are a committed couple and wedding bells could ring for them by this year-end. There is no question of waiting for a divorce to come through as his previous marriage to French actress Mylene Jampanoi wasn't registered either in India or France.
Milind reveals that the separation with Mylene was very amicable, "I am sure that if Mylene knew about my relationship with Shahana today, she would be very supportive about it." Even so, they are not ready to get married just yet. While Milind casually brushes it off with a "Not right now" Shahana is more vocal. She says, "No chance right now! I am only 23."
Shahana takes pains to stress that they are not living together, "I am in a committed relationship and though we both love each other I am not living together with Milind. I am staying at my rented Juhu apartment and quite happy to be there."
