We have seen Akash accompanying his parents on events and IPL matches, and since his wedding with childhood sweetheart, Shloka Mehta was announced, junior Mr and Mrs Ambani have never failed to grab the headlines.

Do you know that Akash Ambani had proposed his ‘crush’, Shloka Mehta on the last day of school? Akash and Shloka had studied at the same school, Dhirubhai Ambani International School, Mumbai. Obviously, Shloka had said ‘yes’ to the proposal and they had even told their families about it. Akash and Shloka were advised to keep their relationship a secret to avoid unwanted media attention. Post getting engaged, Shloka had talked about the bond that she shares with Akash and keeping pace with her relationship despite their hectic schedules.

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.” In a 2018 interview, Nita Ambani was all-praises about her then soon-to-be daughter-in-law, Shloka Mehta and had stated, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts.”
