And since the last Family Day celebrations, our families have grown too. Isn’t that Isha?” Isha had replied, “Yes they have Akash. Shloka and Anant, a very warm welcome to your first Reliance Family Day.” In another video that had emerged on social media, Mukesh Ambani too, had welcomed Shloka and Anand in the family.

Post getting engaged in 2018, Shloka Mehta had talked about the bond that she shares with her childhood friend-turned-fiancé, Akash Ambani and keeping pace with her relationship despite their hectic schedules. Shloka was then quoted as saying by a media portal, “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.”
When Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta had tied the knot in March 2019, the #AkuStoleTheShlo wedding had flooded our social media timelines and the pictures and videos had all our hearts! In a super-adorable video that had emerged on the social media back then, we can see bride Shloka making her bridal entry and her groom, Akash was eagerly waiting to catch a glimpse of the love of his life. As soon as Akash got the first glimpse of his beautiful bride, he couldn’t control his excitement and his reaction was just priceless! Then Akash lovingly pleased Shloka to come to him fast and before going to her groom, Shloka had greeted his parents, Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani by folding her hands and had given them a hug.
