The head of one of India's largest conglomerates, Reliance Industries, Mukesh Ambani is the 10th wealthiest person in the world. The business tycoon has been giving a tough call to his competitors, courtesy of his hard work and commitment. Mukesh Ambani passed on the same traits to his kids, Akash Ambani, Isha Ambani and Anant Ambani. Needless to say, the Ambanis have been soaring high on the professional front and how.
Mukesh Ambani's elder son, Akash Ambani has, time and again, left everyone stunned with his business sense and presence of mind. Recently, the business tycoon made India proud by becoming the only Indian to feature on the Time 100 Next emerging leaders list. The chairman of one of the leading telecom firm of India, Jio, Akash Ambani was named on the magazine’s list of the world’s rising stars. Praising the 30-year-old business magnate, the publication had quoted:
“The scion of Indian industrialist royalty, Akash Ambani was always expected to rise in business. But he has been putting in hard work.”
On October 1, 2022, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi inaugurated the India Mobile Congress event and launched the 5G services in 13 major Indian cities. During the event, he received a hearty welcome from the Chairman of Reliance Jio Telecom, Akash Ambani, and it was simply unmissable. In one of the videos from the same, Mukesh Ambani's elder son, Akash can be seen touching the PM's feet as a gesture of respect for him. Akash's gesture won hearts as it was a testament to his upbringing and etiquette. Check out the video below:
There is no denying the fact that Mukesh Ambani and his wife, Nita Ambani have raised their children, Akash Ambani, Isha Ambani, and Anant Ambani, in the most beautiful way. Apart from inculcating a strong value system, the doting parents taught their kids that power is a responsibility. Needless to say, their down-to-earth upbringing brought the Ambani to a high position, and they have been basking in the success of their business. In a throwback interview with iDiva, Nita Ambani had said:
"Wealth and power don’t go together. Power cannot be brokered. To me, power is responsibility. And I derive it from my family, my work, my passion and my very middle-class values."
Meanwhile, Mukesh Ambani's security has been upgraded from Z to 'Z plus' to give him an extra layer of protection. On September 29, 2022, a report in PTI had stated that the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) has decided to upgrade the security cover of Mukesh Ambani to the top-tier category of 'Z plus' based on a perceived threat perception by the Intelligence Bureau. The report had added that the billionaire would now be guarded by an army of around 40-50 commandos, who would work in shifts, and the cost of security would be endured by the businessman himself.
Undoubtedly, Akash Ambani is the industrialist every business tycoon should look out for!
