The advertisement faced a lot of criticism from women's as well as animal rights' groups. As a result, the advertisement was withdrawn, and a case of obscenity was filed against both Soman and Sapre, but in 2009, both were acquitted after the witnesses turned hostile.   Ever since the news came out about his relationship with Ankita Konwar, a girl half his age, he has been constantly trolled on social media for their age difference.
