While the nation was gearing up for both the Ambani kids’ special day, which was scheduled to happen in December, the reports suggest that it might happen sooner than expected. As per the DNA reports, Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal will officially get engaged on September 21, 2018, in a grand ceremony in Italy. The pre-wedding ceremonies will kickstart from the last week of November to the first week of December in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
The high-profile families, Ambanis and Piramals have zeroed in the City Of Lakes for their children’s pre-wedding functions, and who’s who of known fraternities are expected on the guest list. As per the traditions, the girl is supposed to get married before her brother. So, Isha Ambani will tie the knot before her twin brother, Akash Ambani. The pre-wedding festivities will be followed by a grand wedding in Mumbai on December 12, 2018. Akash and Shloka’s wedding is likely to happen in March 2019.
On May 7, 2018, Ambani and Piramal families hosted a post-proposal bash for Isha and Anand, and needless to say, it was a star-studded affair. Sachin Tendulkar, Shah Rukh Khan, Ranbir Kapoor, Karan Johar, Aamir Khan, Gauri Khan, Ayan Mukerji, amongst others attended the function.
Before Isha Ambani walks down the aisle towards her future with Anand Piramal, let us give you a quick look to everything about Ambani’s hone-wala-damaad. Anand is the son of Swati Piramal and businessman, Ajay Piramal. He is a graduate from Harvard Business School and has also studied Economics at the University of Pennsylvania. Isha’s husband-to-be is the executive director of Piramal Enterprises, which is reportedly valued at $4 billion.

After his graduation, Anand founded two startup companies, a real estate startup - Piramal Realty and a rural healthcare startup - Piramal eSwasthya. Anand was also given the title of the Youngest President of the Indian Merchant Chamber, Youth Wing. The 33-year-old entrepreneur popped the question to Isha on their Mahabaleshwar trip, and they continued the celebrations with an intimate family lunch.
In a recent interview, Anand Piramal talked about his soon-to-be father-in-law, Mukesh Ambani’s influence on his career choice. He had said, “I asked him whether I should get into consulting or banking. He told me, ‘Bring a consultant is like watching cricket or commentating about cricket while being an entrepreneur is like playing cricket. You can’t learn how to play cricket by commentating. If you want to do something, be an entrepreneur in the long term, and start now.’” (Also Read: Akash Ambani And Shloka Mehta's Pre-Engagement: Isha-Mukesh Ambani's Emotional Dance On 'Dilbaro')
