Seems like the youngest Ambani, Anant Ambani has also decided to enter the 'Doubles Club' soon. Anant's rumoured girlfriend, Radhika Merchant will allegedly be the soon-to-be choti bahu of the family. After her Ghoomar dance performance with the brides-to-be, Isha and Shloka, during the former’s engagement and Radhika walking hand-in-hand with Anant as Isha walked down the aisle on her engagement at Lake Como, Italy; Radhika seems to be an ‘important and special’ family member of the Ambanis.
On November 30, 2018, at our desi girl, Priyanka Chopra and American singer, Nick Jonas’s sangeet ceremony, Nita Ambani and Mukesh Ambani graced the occasion along with their daughter and soon-to-be-bride, Isha Ambani and son, Anant Ambani. Accompanying them was their alleged to-be daughter-in-law, Radhika Merchant. While Nita Ambani chose to wear a pink and white lehenga, Isha outshined in a multi-coloured sharara.
In a super-adorable video that went viral, Nita Ambani can be seen walking hand-in-hand with Radhika and then making her stand in front besides Mukesh Ambani, while posing for the shutterbugs. Looks like this special appearance of Radhika along with the Ambani clan at #PriyankaKiShaadi is an official announcement of her relationship with Anant. The mother-in-law and daughter-in-law PDA is something that you might wanna watch on loop. Here’s the video:
In May 2018, a picture of Anant and Radhika went viral on social media which added fuel to the conjectures of their engagement. But the Reliance spokesperson dismissed the speculations and told Business Today, "Anant Ambani is not engaged yet.” On the other hand, Nita Ambani had told Bombay Times earlier, “Mukesh and I have given very strong foundation to our kids and even larger wings to fly - they have the freedom to take decisions for themselves and of course, choose whom they would want to spend the rest of their lives with. Marrying the one you love is gratifying and heart-warming.”
Radhika also accompanied Ambani pariwar during their visit to the Siddhivinayak Temple in Mumbai, soon after Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's engagement. For the uninitiated ones, Radhika Merchant is the daughter of Viren Merchant, the CEO and Vice Chairman of Encore Healthcare. Radhika completed her schooling from Mumbai’s Cathedral and John Connon School and École Mondiale World School before pursuing her IB Diploma from BD Somani International School. Radhika received her graduate degree from the New York University, in Politics and Economics.

Shah Rukh asked Anant to rate Radhika on her performance, to which Anant ecstatically replied, "10 million...infinity!" Then SRK asked Anant that his brother Akash has Shloka, his sister, Isha has Anand, so who is his girlfriend. Shah Rukh further probed Anant to show his phone as the first person’s number on their phone is of someone they love the most. Watch the video to see how Anant reacts:
We can’t wait to hear Anant and Radhika’s wedding bells ringing soon! We wish many such moments of love and happiness for this super-amazing mother-in-law and daughter-in-law jodi.
