How amazing is this! Last year, a few lovey-dovey pictures of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant went viral on social media and in no time, rumours were afloat that the duo has gotten engaged. However, a Reliance spokesperson had refuted all such engagement rumours and had shared with Business Today, “Anant Ambani is not engaged yet.”
This is totally at par as Nita Ambani herself had spoken about their children and choosing their respective life partners in an interview. This is what she had shared, “Mukesh and I as parents have given our children the freedom to choose their life partners. When my son decides to get married, to whoever it is, we are going to welcome him and wish him all the happiness in the world.”
Coming back to Shloka Mehta and Akash Ambani’s wedding, an official statement pertaining to Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s wedding could be read as “The Akash Ambani wedding started with Akash and his family paying their respects to his Dadaji and Nanaji. All the guests collected at the pre-wedding concourse for the Saafa tying ceremony even as Vishal and Shekhar engaged in some foot tapping singing to set the tempo. Seen mingling and enjoying tying the saafa, the festive Indian turban, were former British Premiere Tony Blair, former U N Secy general Ban Ki-Moon global CEOs, cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, other cricketers and Bollywood stars.”
The statement could be further read as, “The Baaraat left from the Concourse through the Driveway amidst boisterous dancing and Masti...putting everyone in great spirits. More corporate Honchos and Bollywood celebrities joined the family in the Baraat Masti including Google's CEO Sunder Pichai, global heads of Bank of America, and JP Morgan, stars Ranbir Kapoor, Shahrukh Khan, Amir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Thalaiva Rajanikant, cricketers Yuvraj Singh, Hardik and Krunal Pandya and many more.” (Must Read: Nita Ambani Gives A Special Dance Performance At Akash Ambani And Shloka Mehta's Wedding Reception)
It concluded with, “The Baraat will enter the wedding Hall within the Jio World Centre for the various ceremonies including Pokhwanu, Jaimala, Saptapadi, Kanyadaan etc. The guests will be treated to various delicacies from across the world as part of the wedding dinner. The wedding celebrations will continue on 10th and 11th March with lovely receptions and exquisite performances lined up. A key highlight of the receptions will be unheard of musical fountain cum dance show which integrates the mesmerising and colourful movements of the water fountain to a spectacular dance performance on stage and an aerial dance act right above the stage and the water fountain! In many ways, signifying the lyrical symmetry between water, earth and sky.”
In an interview to an online portal, Shloka had spoken about keeping pace with her relationship inspite of their hectic schedules. She was 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”.
While Akash had revealed, “I am truly happy that our friendship has blossomed into love and Shloka and I are getting married, she is a truly special and extremely kind-hearted person”. In another interview with a leading media portal, Nita Ambani, post-Akash and Shloka’s proposal had said, “I have known Shloka since she was four and we are all delighted to welcome her to our home and our hearts”. A source close to the family had revealed, “Shloka is a very charming girl, extremely cultured and it’s difficult to say which of the two families is lucky with this upcoming marriage”. (Do Checkout!
