Post getting engaged, Shloka Mehta had talked about the bond that she shares with Akash Ambani and keeping pace with her relationship despite of their hectic schedules. Shloka was then quoted as saying, “Despite years and busy schedules, we have always found ways to stay connected. Akash is incredibly grounded, and we share a bond based on meaning and memories. We don't just get along - we also support each other's hopes and aspirations and are determined to build a sense of purpose into our lives together. We are lucky to have a love that began with being best friends and luckier still to have such supportive families.”
On April 1, 2019, the newly-wedded couple, Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta along with the Ambani clan including Mukesh Ambani, Nita Ambani and Isha Ambani Piramal went out for a family dinner at Wasabi By Morimoto, Taj Mahal Hotel. Dressed in casuals, the Ambani clan was all smiles for the camera as they posed for a happy family photograph. This would be the first picture of Shloka Mehta post her wedding with Akash Ambani and she can be seen twinning with her darling husband in their monochrome look, on a casual outing with her in-laws:
The newest member of Ambani family, Shloka Mehta is the director of the Rosy Blue Foundation and co-founder of ConnectFor, which matches volunteers with NGOs that need them. Do you know that Akash Ambani had proposed his ‘crush’, Shloka Mehta on the last day of school? Obviously, Shloka had said ‘yes’ to his proposal and they even told their families about it. Akash and Shloka were advised to keep their relationship a secret to avoid unwanted media attention.
Amongst the multitudinous photos and videos that went viral on #AkuStoleTheShlo from Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding functions, a one-of-a-kind video from the after party showcased the fun that the newly-wedded couple had with the youngster lot. Akash and Shloka sealed their wedding with an ‘oh-so-romantic’ liplock as their friends cheered for them. Post sharing their ‘kiss of love’ moment, Akash and Shloka went on to cheer for chote bhai, Anant Ambani and his ‘not-so-rumoured’ anymore muse, Radhika Merchant to follow suit, which they shyly refused.
