Even though it has been almost a year now since the first wedding in the Ambani household had taken place, seems like the internet still hasn’t gotten over the pictures and videos from #IshaKiShaadi. Soon after, the nation witnessed the next weeding in line, #AkuStoleTheShlo and couldn’t help but gape in wonderment of the larger-than-life celebrations. Since we are nearing the end of 2019, everyone was expecting an official announcement of the climax of the wedding spree for the Ambanis and it did happen, but not what we had expected. In simpler words, we are getting an amazing climax to 2019 with an Ambani wedding, but it is not of the most-eligible couple, Anant Ambani and his not-so-rumoured-anymore ladylove, Radhika Merchant.

With Isha Ambani and Anand Piramal’s big-fat wedding in December 2018, we had witnessed the standard of Indian marriages taken to a whole different level. Three months later, when Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta had tied the knot, the bar of the weddings was yet again taken to a different level, describing which would be an understatement. While everyone was expecting the next wedding announcement to be of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant, we were delighted to know that Mukesh Ambani and Anil Ambani’s nephew is tying the knot, which means we will get to witness extravaganza, a well-lit Antilia and an array of stars, once again.
A few days back, Mukesh Ambani’s nephew's pre-wedding party had taken place at the Ambani household, Antilia and was a host to an array of B-town celebs. And the show-stealers of the pre-wedding party were none other than the three ladies of the Ambani household, Isha Ambani Piramal, Shloka Mehta and Radhika Merchant. Post that, the Ambanis hosted a sangeet ceremony for to-be bride and groom at NSCI, Worli and it was the alleged soon-to-be choti bahu of the family, Radhika who turned heads in her traditional best. Radhika shone like a star in a Manish Malhotra lehenga which she had accentuated with diamond jewellery and her hair tied in a ponytail. What we couldn't help but notice was how beautifully Radhika repeated this lehenga, which she had worn at Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's pre-wedding bash, with different jewellery.
To give you a backstory, the junior-most Ambani, Anant is, in all probability seeing the daughter of the Vice-Chairman of Encore Healthcare Private Limited, Radhika Merchant. Not only is Radhika a favourite of the Ambanis, but Anant too is considered a vital part of the Merchant family (already!). A picture posted by one of Radhika’s fan pages had the beauty pose with her family, comprising of her younger sister, Anjali Merchant, boyfriend, Anant. Radhika, as usual, had looked pretty in an orange lehenga and the picture had spoken volumes of family love.

It was in May 2018 when Isha Ambani had gotten engaged to the love of her life, Anand Piramal, and we were introduced to the probable soon-to-be choti bahu of the Ambani clan and Anant Ambani’s girlfriend, Radhika Merchant. In a video that had gone viral from Isha and Anand’s engagement bash, Radhika had come into the limelight with her performance on Ghoomar with then-brides-to-be, Isha and Shloka Mehta. Though there has not been any official confirmation on Radhika and Anant's relationship by the Ambanis, gestures and pictures do not lie!
For Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta's wedding, what looks like it, Radhika Merchant had the maximum fun at their do. We had also shared with you, a few unseen pictures of the rumoured soon-to-be choti bahu of the Ambanis, Radhika Merchant, wherein she had looked ethereal in every single picture! Close-ups of Radhika in an all decked-up avatar and her burning the dance floor at Akash Ambani and Shloka Mehta’s reception are something which gives us a clear picture as to who was the showstopper at the #AkuStoleTheShlo wedding! Here, checkout a few mesmerising pictures of the Ambani's choti bahu from #AkuStoleTheShlo wedding:
In 2018 when a few much-in-love pictures of Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant had emerged on social media, in no time, rumours were afloat that the duo had gotten engaged. However, a Reliance spokesperson had then refuted all such engagement rumours and had shared with Business Today, “Anant Ambani is not engaged yet.” This is totally at par as Nita Ambani herself had spoken about and the freedom given to their children to choose their life partners. This is what she had shared at an event, “Mukesh and I as parents have given our children the freedom to choose their life partners. When my son decides to get married, to whoever it is, we are going to welcome him and wish him all the happiness in the world.” (Also Read: Isha Ambani Piramal, Shloka Mehta And Radhika Merchant Make Heads Turn At AJSK Fashion Show)
