Girl-to-watch Isha Ambani Piramal (@_iiishmagish) talks to Vogue India editor-in-chief Priya Tanna (@priya_tanna) about work, life and the future, and why, for her, India is at the heart of it all." Wow! Isha Ambani has changed her name post-marriage!
Isha Ambani Piramal has shared a lot with Vogue India about her wedding, her work and life post-marriage. Talking about her D-day, the 27-year-old shared, "The wedding went off beautifully. Like any other bride, I had my share of bridal jitters but getting married at home made it very special and I had the time of my life celebrating my most memorable moments with all the people I love."
Was Isha herself a part of the preparation process of her wedding? She answers this and says, "During the wedding my mom was CEO and I was chairperson. She and dad did all the hard work. Thankfully, we ended up liking the same things, so that made it a breeze. I didn’t go to a single wedding meeting. I was never someone who dreamt of how my wedding would be, yet it was wonderful in more ways than I can imagine. It was a very emotional affair for everyone in my family. I was emotional too but everyone around me would cry all the time. I only cried at my bidaai because I felt some peer pressure as everyone else was crying, especially my parents."
Isha Ambani shares the one thing about Anand Piramal which has made her realise that he is 'the one' for her. Isha comments, "I can’t stop at one! (laughs). I love his amazing sense of humour and his spirituality." (Suggested Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Reacts To Trolls Who Shame Her For Having A Nanny For Taimur)
Isha is asked about where does she and Anand differ. She retorts, "He hates attending events, I enjoy them. I really enjoyed our wedding, but it was not exactly his idea of fun (laughs). He’s more spiritual than I am. But we are also very similar. We are both very family-oriented, and we both love food. I remember in one of the speeches that my father gave at my wedding, he listed ten reasons why he liked Anand. It was hilarious, and dad concluded by saying that these are probably the same ten things that he would also use to describe himself. And it’s true; in many ways, Anand reminds me of my father."
Reliance Retail and Reliance JIO Infocomm Limited director, also reveals how her routine post-marriage has been. She says, "Last night, we had dinner, and then from 11pm to 3am Anand had a meeting in his office. So, I don’t think his life has changed, and neither has mine. At this stage, work is a priority for both of us. And luckily, our parents understand that. Fortunately, the family I was born into and the family I married into have the same work ethic—every member of both families knows the importance of work."
Isha's mom, Nita Ambani, is also an inspiring woman and is always seen in the forefront when it comes to the Indian business scene. And we all know that she is the owner of IPL team, Mumbai Indians. Talking about her mother and how she has shaped her attitude towards professionalism, Isha comments, "As much as I want to believe that women can have it all, I know that my mom gave it all up to raise us. But once we grew up, I also saw her balance work and home perfectly. Watching her play all these different roles—from full-time mom to businesswoman—I learnt how important each facet is in a woman’s life and how one needs to define what “having it all” means during these different stages."
She further adds, "I feel very passionately about gender equality and equal participation in the workforce because growing up I was made to believe that I could do whatever my brothers could do, as well if not better. So as a working woman, I believe that companies must create an environment that fosters equal participation. At Jio, we have programmes for women that allow them to form communities and support each other. But what would really give me satisfaction is when I know that no matter which meeting I enter, engineering or design, there will be an equal number of women in the room."
