It's indeed a time for celebration for the Ambani clan as they have welcomed a new member to their family, and it's none other than the gorgeous Radhika Merchant. On January 19, 2023, Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani’s younger son, Anant Ambani, got engaged to his childhood sweetheart, Radhika Merchant. The engagement ceremony took place at their extravagant residence, Antilia, at Altamount Road, Mumbai. The glimpses of the same are doing rounds on the internet, which are proof of the grandeur of the event.
Recently, while scrolling through our IG handle, we stumbled upon a video of Isha Ambani announcing the commencement of her brother, Anant Ambani's engagement with Radhika Merchant. Addressing the family members and close friends present at the event, Isha sought their blessings for the upcoming union of the couple. She welcomed everyone to the lavish ceremony and gave a wonderful introduction of the couple, Anant and Radhika. Isha can be heard saying:
"We welcome you to the Gol Dhana ceremony of our beloved, beautiful and brilliant, Radhu, with our most precious and cutest and most extraordinary, Anant."

Isha then handed the mic over to her bhabhi, Shloka Mehta, and asked her to say a few words on the special occasion. The Ambani bahu welcomed the guests to their luxurious house, Antilia, on behalf of her in-laws and beloved grandmother, Kokila Mami. As soon as Shloka took Kokilaben Ambani's name, the latter stood up and greeted the guests with joined hands, leaving everyone in splits. Shloka said:
"On behalf of our grandmother, Kokila Mami, and my in-laws, our whole family welcomes you back to our home and to our celebration."
After Shloka, it was Mukesh Ambani's niece, Isheta Salgaocar, who addressed the guests with her sweet words. On behalf of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant, Isheta shared a short message for the guests, asking them to be present with them wholeheartedly. She also jokingly requested the guests to keep their phones away and enjoy the festivities. Isheta said:
"We have a short message from the couple, we would be very grateful if everyone was present with their eyes and their hearts, and not with their phones. So, can you please be present with us? You are our nearest and dearest, and we wouldn't be able to do it without you. Love, Radhika and Anant."
Radhika Merchant and Anant Ambani's engagement ceremonies began with age-old Gujarati traditions, Gol Dhana and Chunari Vidhi, which was followed by a ring exchange. Following the traditions, the Ambani family organised engagement functions at their residence, Antilia, and welcomed the Merchant family, along with the to-be-Ambani bahu, Radhika Merchant, with open arms. After that, Anant and Radhika sought blessings from Lord Krishna, and the families also performed a Ganesh puja.
Talking about Isha Ambani's look at Anant Ambani's engagement, she looked stunning in a white-hued anarkali suit. Her regal outfit was from the shelves of the designer duo, Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla, and it was adorned with heavy chikankari work and featured a front slit. To amp up the glam quotient, she opted for some regal jewels, which included heavy necklaces adorned with ruby and pearls, a maang teeka and a matching pair of earrings. She completed her look with a pulled-back hairdo adorned with a pearl hair string accessory.
The lovely video of Isha Ambani, Shloka Mehta and Isheta Salgaocar, reflects their bonding and love for one another, and it's simply unmissable.
