Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta got engaged in a lavish ceremony in June 2018, the lovebirds were rumoured to have a December wedding the same year. But the doting brother, Akash voluntarily gave up his wedding dates for his twin sister, Isha Ambani. Isha walked down the aisle with the love of her life, Anand Piramal, on December 12, 2018.
In a recent interaction with Vogue, the newly-married Isha Ambani Piramal revealed that her twin brother, Akash Ambani willingly gave up his wedding dates for his darling sister. Isha had said, "Akash has the largest heart ever. He changed his wedding dates for me. He got engaged to Shloka before Anand and me, but he was like, “I’ll get married afterwards, you take my wedding dates.” He’s like one of the most—I don’t think there’s a word for it in English—“dayalu” humans in this world. He’s empathetic, gracious and gentle, just like Shloka."
Talking about her soon-to-be sister-in-law, Shloka, Isha had stated, “In fact, Shloka’s sister, Diya [Mehta Jatia] and I were in the same class in Sunflower and then in JB [Petit]. We have been best friends for over 25 years. Then when I moved to Ambani, I skipped a grade and went to Shloka’s class. So I’ve been like a third sister to them. I was thrilled with the engagement news. Shloka’s always been part of the family for us.” (Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor Kisses Akash Ambani In Front Of His Fiancee, Shloka Mehta, Her Reaction Is Unmissable)
